Salisbury Plain SSSI Breeding Bird Survey 2015 (RP02380)

Natural England commissioned Thomson Ecology Ltd on the 18th March 2015 to undertake a Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) of Salisbury Plain Site of Special Scientific interest (SSSI). The BBS is needed to inform the SSSI Integrated Site Assessment (ISA) of 2014-16, and in particular to show how key bird species are faring on Salisbury Plain SSSI, especially in respect of Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Higher Level Stewardship (HLS) scrub management and grazing programmes. This will help inform DIO’s revised Super Unit Management Plans of 2014-2016.
