This BBC report looks at the state of our wildlife here in the UK. It paints a mixed picture, with some highs and some lows.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-37362571

There's one thing for sure and that's that we must do better.

Its of little use us having a few high profile successes when the underlying trend is a downwards one.

I believe that one of the main causes for the decline in British wildlife is still agriculture and its need to feed a burgeoning population with cheap food.

Those amongst us who feed the birds and create mini habitat for wildlife in our gardens are basically trying to keep a whole eco system going. Its worth doing of course but more needs to be done and on a much bigger scale.
