Many of our migrant birds are in trouble. Some species have declined by a staggering 93 per cent over the last 40 years. We need to find out the reasons and work with partners to help save them.
In the UK, we have already made progress on work for our summer visitors. But 'our' migrant birds are, on average, here for just four months of the year. If we only looked at what is happening to migratory birds in that space of time, if that was the only time we cared about them, we would be missing the bigger picture.
These birds recognise no borders. By protecting birds on migration and by contributing to the vital research of our dedicated conservationists here in the UK and in Africa we can help prevent the loss of our summer migrants.
You can play a part in this story by donating whatever you can afford today to save these birds for future generations.
Chris Packham, naturalist and TV presenter, is behind our campaign to save our migrants. He too is looking forward to seeing and hearing our summer visitors this year:
