Bird threatened by climate change

A rare game bird which recently made a comeback in Wales could be wiped out by climate change in just 20 years, according to a new report.
Black grouse numbers dropped to 131 active males in 1997, but rose to 247 by 2005.

But the species faces extinction in Wales if global warming continues at the current rate, research suggests.

Hi there,

I discovered your Blog last night in my search for my nominations for the ‘Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award’. You will find details in my post of 25th July 2007.

I write a gardenwatch blog from Scotland and my visiting garden birds play a large part in it. I do believe studying behavioural changes in birds will help in the understanding of climate change – please keep up the good work!
