CFE Bird Event

CFE Bird Event

The first in a series of bird events being held by CFE in Cheshire on 01/02/17. 

Farmland birds

Meadow Bank Farm, Broxton, Cheshire.


The events will look at CFE Voluntary Measures that support farmland birds, and look at the importance of retaining relevant agri-environment options wherever possible, particularly field margins. These can help birds with the ‘hungry gap’ when food sources are low.  Good hedgerow management can also be important for supporting farmland birds.

These events will complement the ID days that happen on the run up to the Big Farmland Bird Count. The 2017 Big Farmland Bird Count will take place from Friday 3rd to Sunday 12th February 2017.

Other events are taking place across the country, please see the CFE weblink below for further details.





Event Date: Wed, 01/02/2017
