Farmland birds race ahead at Goodwood

While farmland bird populations in South East England are generally tumbling (Defra reports a 21 per cent fall from 1994 to 2006) a real bird conservation success has been logged at one leading organic farm.

Home Farm on the Goodwood Estate has seen a 50 per cent increase in the breeding populations of three key farmland birds (skylark, linnet and yellowhammer) in the five years to 2007.
