The majority of the video is bilingual except the interview with the farmer involved; we are awaiting subtitles for this section which will be added ASAP.

This Big Farmland Bird Count evening was held on 2 February 2021 and kindly hosted by BIS, Biodiversity Information Service. It features a BFBC presentation from Matt Goodall, Advisor Wales, and was preceded by a farmland bird identification presentation from ornithologist Simon Boyes, which can be found here.

Shooting Matters

This video was made at an event where Dr Tracey Latham-Green answered questions on her PhD paper, Understanding the Social Impact of Participation in Driven Game Shooting in the UK. Sue Evans, Director of GWCT Wales, outlined the content and purpose of the Welsh Community Spirit Report at the Q&A session which followed.

Sir Jim Paice, Chairman of the GWCT and former UK Minister of Agriculture and Food, chairs the meeting alongside the Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire GWCT Committee’s Antony Sykes, who hosted this virtual event in January 2021 based around his interview with Tracey about her PhD work on social impacts of driven game shooting. The two pieces of work cross over, showing how the game-shooting community can play its part in social cohesion and mental health support with wider society, especially with the focus on provision in rural areas.
