I have noticed a serious decline in the numbers of birds and insects this year (compared to last year and years previous).
Fewer swallows and housemartins. A noticeable reduction in the numbers of wood pigeons, crows and starlings. Numbers of traditional garden birds appear to be holding up, ie normal. Numbers of green finches appears to be on the increase after the virus that decimated the numbers of the species a few years ago.
Greatly reduced numbers and varieties of butterflies. Numbers of wild bees are greatly down compared to last year
Anyone in the UK notice a similar pattern?
