Studying the declining Corn Bunting Population in North Cornwall
Background: This project aims to develop effective methods for monitoring small vulnerable populations such as that of the Corn Bunting which breeds in North Cornwall. An important strand of the research will be identifying how specific aspects of behaviour (e.g song dialects, philopatry, loyalty to traditional song posts or breeding sites) might constrain conservation efforts. The research is a also investigating the practicality of using digital photography as a basis for individually identifying the birds and evaluating the reliability of the traditional method of marking birds for monitoring: colour ringing. This research is being carried out in cooperation with the RSPB who are involved in promoting uptake of Countryside Stewardship agreements in North Cornwall, and is registered for PhD at University of Bristol under Prof Innes Cuthill with local supervision by Dr. Peter McGregor of Cornwall College.
Currently taking a short break from research activities, with intention to resume in near future.
