Chilly, Wet Weather Affecting the Existence of Birds in British Gardens
It was in June, when the wildlife charity's Make Your Nature Count survey was conducted to find out the impact of chilly weathers on bird species blackbirds, song thrushes and robins.
After conducting this national bird survey, the RSPB found that changing cold and wet weather conditions are severely affecting the existence of birds in the gardens of UK.
According to RSPB, if during the beginning of a breeding season, the cold, wet weather arrives then it creates certain hurdles for adult birds to find enough food for their chicks. And therefore it results in devastating situations for them.
In general, the nests of bird species blackbirds and thrushes are open and exposed to the weather elements. Therefore, when adult birds go far away from their nests to look out for food, their chicks are also exposed to chilly, wet conditions.
Due to changing weather conditions, it has been noticed that in comparison to last year’s ratio (5%), this year, only 4% of gardens are there in which baby song thrushes are seen. At the same time, young blackbirds that were spotted in 44% gardens last year are found in only 37% of gardens. And as far as robins are concerned, the percentage of gardens having them has reduced from 23% to 19%.
