The period immediately following sunrise is usually said to be the best time to survey for most diurnal species, but was it the same for pipits?
With the merlin gone for the winter, we have been busy in the uplands taking field measurements to understand what makes habitats suitable for nesting merlin. As merlin are specially protected, it is important that they are not disturbed while they are breeding, so we collect these measurements after the breeding season ends.
