More about the sparrow:
Recently the numbers of both species of Sparrow have declined substantially and in some areas, they are now rarely seen. Long-term studies have confirmed this drastic reduction in their numbers across Europe. The causes include the clearance and monotonous nature of rural areas, the sterility of many gardens and landscaped areas, and the use of chemicals in agriculture and gardens. The survival of these species is particularly threatened by widespread building renovation and clearance, which denies them many nesting possibilities.
Why are nest boxes important?
Natural nest sites are being lost having devastating consequences for bird species. Birds are an essential component of functioning ecosystems and have a direct impact on human populations and millions of other species. It is therefore important to provide our feathered friends with a home.
