River Thame - birding desert or just under watched and undervalued?
By: Nick Marriner
The River Thame is one of Oxfordshire’s lesser known rivers but one that holds some key populations of wetland birds and that the River Thame Conservation Trust is passionate about. The talk will give an overview of the Trust’s bird surveying projects that have now been running for over 5 years. Our Wetland Bird Survey and Atlas have shown the value of long term monitoring and distribution mapping and have highlighted some real birding hotspots. The talk will share how we have gone about the surveys, the results it is showing, the birds we have been finding and the practical conservation work the surveys have been supporting.
