British birdwatchers are used to bad news. House sparrow numbers have fallen from an estimated 30m to 10m since 1966. Curlews have become a rare sight, their numbers plummeting by 50% in 15 years. Cuckoos, once-frequent visitors from Africa, have declined by 63% in the south-east in the past two decades. Earlier springs that confuse migratory birds, more efficient farming and the conversion of dilapidated buildings (good for nesting) into modern homes have all contributed to these woes. 6 N" k" z. t: _4 g
英国的观鸟者已经对坏消息习以为常。自1966 年以来,家养麻雀的数量已从约3000 万减少到1000 万。杓鷸的数量在十五年间锐减50%,变得越发罕见。过去二十年间,曾经经常从非洲**至英国东南部的布谷鸟数量减少了63%。造成这种灾患的原因包括迷惑候鸟的早春,更高效的耕种以及危房(适宜筑巢)向现代房屋的转变。

Blackcaps, small woodland birds native to Germany and eastern Europe, are lingering after their summer sojourns: since 1967 numbers have increased by 177%. The little eGREt, a white heron-like bird, arrived from continental European ** and now numbers over 5,000. Woodpigeons, once found shyly cooing in forests, have boldly moved into cities and suburbs. 4 }- Z6 A1 ^9 C  v0 M) A1 L* F: K0 t
黑顶林莺是来自德国和东欧地区的一种小型林栖鸟,在它们的夏季之旅后仍然流连忘返。自1967 年以来,它们的数量增加了177%。小白鹭,一种白色的鹭科鸟类** 年从欧洲大陆而来,现在它们的数量已经突破5000. 原先只敢在树林里低吟浅唱的斑尾林鸽已经勇敢地迁移到了城市和郊区。
5 c7 x: z% m. _( REnvironmental and agricultural changes have helped as well as disoriented birds. Modern farming techniques allow grain to be sown in the autumn rather than the spring; that helps wood pigeons feed in winter. Warmer winters mean rivers and ponds are less likely to freeze, providing the little egrets with food. James Pearce-Higgins of the BTO says that blackcaps benefit particularly from the increasing popularity of berry bushes (such as rowan and yew) in people’s gardens. 8 s. ?) c6 B) g7 M) Q
; O4 a6 u0 [7 @/ \6 @# BThese species and others benefit from the British love of bird feeders. “I would be amazed if anyone feeds garden birds in Europe as much as we do,” says Stephen Moss, a nature writer. First sold in 1964 by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), a charity withover1mmembers, bird feeders took off in the 1990s when food such as sunflower hearts and nyjer seeds became widely available and the RSPB began to encourage people to feed birds throughout the year. (The bird tables found in other northern European countries, such as Finland and Germany, tend to be stocked only during the winter.) In 1987 only 17 species availed themselves of British feeders; these days 86 do.

Birders grouse nonetheless. Some of the species prospering, such as carrion crows and buzzards, are disliked. And migratory birds that extend their visits may provide competition for some avian natives. They are “muscling in and getting the first claim on breeding sites”, says Richard Cowser of the Sussex Ornithological Society. Like their human counterparts, residents of a small island buffeted by global winds, British birds will have to learn to compete.
