Hawfinch Diet Project

We are currently involved in a PhD study investigating Hawfinch diet through faecal DNA analysis and in need of a reference DNA sample from a Hawfinch – the easiest way to obtain this is from a freshly dead (or fresh when frozen) bird or bird remains.

If anyone comes across or hears about one (cat, sparrowhawk, road, window or any other casualty) whole or part remains, please can you let me know asap and we will arrange collection or advise on postage. This year’s influx may provide our best opportunity!

Many thanks,

Will Kirby
