City of Westminster Council: 2004 December 17th.
I can confirm that the City Council is also concerned about the decline of songbirds and are involved in several initiatives to help encourage them into our parks and open spaces.
As members of the Westminster Bio diversity Partnership, we are engaged in a number of projects to promote and encourage songbird populations.
We have planted hawthorn bushes in several of our parks and increased the native species in low shrub/scrub planting west of Hyde Park meadow.
Log piles and other dead wood is now left in appropriate parks to encourage invertebrate populations.
In addition to this, we have commissioned a study of London squares to establish the causes of songbird decline, with a view to implementing improved management techniques though-out our open spaces.
Leader of the Council: Simon Milton.
2010 May: Songbirds-Slaughter; Result negative. Nothing yet ever again came of it? Nothing achieved as yet (ever again) for our – Songbirds…!
Photos: Marsh Warbler - UK Biodiversity Action Plan 1998 revised 2006. “Increase to 15 breeding pairs by 2010″ ? Result? – Carnage.
Just – Ever more are ‘dead…!’ – NOW EXTINCTION… – And DISGUSTING.
“Few now hear this master singing continuously for up to an hour and mimicking the musical songs of birds from its breeding and wintering range…”
Marsh Warbler – “Precariously Rare” – ‘Silenced’ – In Britain? Dredged Up ‘dead’ – RED!
Abraham Lincoln – “I am in favour of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”
How do they manage to navigate such huge distances. Being able to detect earths magnetic field?
Somehow experiencing different sensation when facing north or south. To find their way along a compass bearing direction?
Even when the tiny songbirds reach their destination they rely only on memory of visual landmarks to guild them.
‘Songbirds unrecognised abilities and complex aspects of migration.’
We have to appreciate them and their behaviour ever more.
“Awe-inspiring mysterious even to our human understanding…”
Ashley Montagu – “The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil.”
First because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit.
Marsh Warbler – Carnage 2004 – ‘15 Breeding pairs by 2010…!’ – “Precariously Rare” – In Britain DEAD. NOW ‘Silenced !’ Cry…?
