This week, I’m covering three amaze-wing stories for you.
A 1947 Research Project
Wytham Woods’ Great Tit study celebrates 75 years and reveals how spring has advanced a calendar month in that time.
On 27 April 1947, the first Great Tit egg of the year was counted in the University of Oxford’s ‘living laboratory’ at Wytham Woods.
It is the longest continuous study of an individually-marked animal population in the world. It plays a key role in scientists’ understanding of how populations change in response to the environment – particularly how they are coping with changing climates.
Birds Across the Globe
What is the status of birds across the globe? Are they increasing or decreasing? Let’s find out in this video.
Pelican Breeding in Lake Brewster
More than 30,000 pelicans have descended on a river system in New South Wales, in one of the largest breeding events recorded in Australia.
A wet and wild summer across the state created the ideal conditions for the native species to breed at Lake Brewster, in the state’s Central West.
