The House Sparrow - one of our commonest and most familiar birds, has declined by over 50% over the last 25 years in both urban and rural habitats. The House Sparrows in Schools Project supported by Restore UK has four main aims: To raise awareness in schools of the importance of house sparrow populations and make links to the wider issues of decline in familiar countryside birds; to involve children in a practical conservation project in school grounds; to deliver practical conservation measures to sustain house sparrow populations; and to pilot a summer House Sparrow breeding survey. 50 primary schools across east Anglia are provided with nest boxes, and free food for 3 years. They are also provided with `I`m in Trouble` information packs and a fun assembly presentation. Close monitoring will provide the information to transfer this to a national project. Restore has fully funded the Nest boxes, bird tables and school mailing.http://www.restoreuk.org/projectsuk.php?prj=50
Of all the trees that grow so fair,
Old England to adorn,
Greater are none beneath the Sun,
Than Oak, and Ash, and Thorn.
