Advice for farmers

Farming provides a huge opportunity to secure the future for many birds of conservation concern. Much of our advice and support for farmers to enable them to do this is funded through the LIFE+ programme. Follow the 'Advice and support for farmers' link on this page for more detailed information on the project.
