The RSPB reports that the UK has lost more than 40 million birds since 1966, largely due to the destruction of habitats, pollution and climate change.
Statistics individual to each species of bird are even more startling: in the last 50 years, the number of nightingales has fallen by 50 per cent; more than half of all skylarks have disappeared; and turtle-doves are down 98 per cent. The swift and the curlew are now critically endangered. Imagine spring without birdsong.
