Corn Bunting flocks

The Corn Bunting is a bird which has seen declines of nearly 90 per cent in the UK over the past 40 years. It is estimated that there are less than 20,000 birds in the country. They are certainly not that easy to see!

So it was a surprise to the RSPB when one field in Befordshire had a flock of 700 birds. Apparently no one at the RSPB has recorded a flock that large.

The RSPB is trying to find out why so many birds have turned up at that one field.

Makes you wonder where they've been and come from doesn't it!
