Return of the Dartford Warbler

The Dartford Warbler, once down to just 11 pairs after the winter of 1963, has enjoyed a dramatic comeback. By 1994 there were an estimated 1890 pairs and now 3208.

It’s not all good news. The popilation in Surrey, Berks and Hampshire fell by 40% between 2005 and 2006. No one is sure why.
