Shocking number ... Red list of endangered birds in Britain

Shocking number … Red list of endangered birds in Britain

According to the Red List of Threatened Species released on Wednesday, the proportion of birds endangered in the UK is around 30%.

The red list includes common birds such as the reddish-brown, swallow and goldfinch.

The new list includes the largest number of birds so far, rising from 67 species to 70 species in 2015, among 245 species common in the United Kingdom, the English Islands and the Isle of Man, including birds in urgent need of protection. That number is more than double what was added to the list when it was launched in 1995.

In the new list, 11 species have been classified in red for the first time by experts from the British Ornithological Fund, the Royal Society for Bird Conservation, the Wildlife Trusts and the National Trust.

Cuckoo and puffin are included in the list, and the golden yellow-feathered Oriole is listed as a breed no longer bred in the UK.

Despite the dark picture of the birds’ condition, some improvements have been recorded because plans to revive some species allowed the black-tailed eagle to move from the red list to the orange list.

Experts have added five new species to their classification, according to AFP, whose origin is largely due to the occurrence of climate warming in the UK.

The list proves that “the UK’s wildlife is on the verge of extinction and efforts to prevent this decline are inadequate,” said the Managing Director of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

“Like the climate, this is our last chance to stop and reverse the destruction of nature,” he added, stressing the need for “greater efforts to be made quickly and on a larger scale.”

Andrew Hoodles, director of the Sports and Wildlife Conservation Foundation, “points out the need to better understand the impacts of climate change on specific species, as well as the migration paths of migratory birds from sub-Saharan Africa and the impact of habitat change and food availability in wintering areas.”
