Recent Achievements
Native Red Kites continued their increase in Wales, with well over 500 pairs in 2004, from just over 30 only 30 years ago, and White-tailed Eagles were reintroduced to Scotland with 32 birds rearing 19 young birds in 2004. The Corncrake, continued to increase following RSPB action, with 1,059 males in 2004, 579 more than in 1993 and a further increase in booming male Bitterns on RSPB reserves saw the UK passing its 2010 target of 50 booming males six years early
The RSPB added 59 hectares (146 acres) of land to The Lodge nature reserve around its UK headquarters in Bedfordshire. The land will be restored to heathland
At the RSPB’s Hope Farm in Cambridgeshire more than 100 species have been seen at the farm since its purchase. In 2000, there were 10 pairs of Skylarks on the 180 hectare farm; by the summer of 2003, there were 27, in the same pattern of crops
With strong backing form local people and local authorities, the RSPB successfully opposed a proposed airport at Cliffe, Kent. More than 150,000 members wrote to the Government demanding that this outrageous plan, which would have destroyed vast protected areas of special conservation importance and left hundreds of thousands of birds with nowhere to go, should be stopped
In 2004, RSPB membership reached 1,041,712, the eighth year in succession with more than a million members
The support of volunteer letter writers helped the RSPB win an award for setting the political agenda at the annual Political Studies Association (PSA) Awards in recognition of the RSPB as one of the UK’s most effective campaigning groups
The RSPBs long running survey, Big Garden Birdwatch, grew from 314,000 counters in 2003 to 419,000 in 2004 – an astonishing number for a garden bird count
