Rare birds doing better than common birds in UK

34804635A BBC News story has highlighted the fact that rare birds seem to be breeding better in the UK over the last 10 years than their more common counterparts. The rare birds include the osprey, corncrake, avocet, cirl bunting and stone-curlew.

There appears to be a link between this improved breeding and conservation work, and Dr David Noble, of the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) felt that the good work done with rare birds should now also be applied to the more common ones, such as the kestrel and skylark.
