The index of wild bird populations is one of the Government's key indicators for sustainable development in the UK. Bird populations are considered to be a good indicator of the broad state of wildlife and countryside because they occupy a wide range of habitats, they tend to be near or at the top of the food chain, and considerable long-term data on bird populations has been collected. This gives further information.
The report for 1994-2008 has been added.

The Prime Minister has announced that a general election will be held on Thursday 6 May 2010. There are also local elections in London boroughs and a number of English local authorities on the same day.
info4local is managed by Communities and Local Government and a number of other government departments and we are bound by strict rules of impartiality in the run up to elections.
This means that we will not be adding any new data to info4local until after the elections. You will not receive emails from us until then. You will still be able to access the info4local website and all existing information will be available to search for in our archive.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our service after the elections.
