Abstract

Habitat management techniques currently used or proposed on lowland arable and mixed farmland are reviewed, and practical examples described as implemented on two contrasting farms in the East Midlands of England. Management to provide nesting habitat, food during the breeding season and food during winter are considered. Changes in bird numbers resulting from conservation management are recorded, and the cost of, and incentives for, such management are discussed.
