Q and A: Henfield Talk

Just one unanswered question from Mike Russell’s talk on Henfield and its birds (now on our YouTube channel).


Question Answer(s)
1 Has the Henfield Bird Group been able to bring about any habitat improvements in the area or influence any local landowners to manage their land for nature? Henfield Birdwatch hasn’t liaised directly with landowners other than through Henfield Parish Council, where we talked to them about the three commons they manage and the data we provide to help them do this. We also contributed to a consultation regarding introducing grazing to Henfield Common. We don’t directly advise the landowner at Perching Sands Farm but he’s always interested in the survey resuts that we provide and he does follow a number of management practices to improve conditions for birds. However, it is something we hope to do more of in the future.
