Managing Scrub for Nightingales

Conservation Advice No. 1

British Trust for Ornithology


"The Nightingale is a very well known, yet rarely seen, bird that is found across parts of southern England. It favours scrub and woodland habitats for breeding and its populations are known to be particularly sensitive to changes in the structure of woodland vegetation. This guide draws on BTO research to highlight the requirements of this scarce bird for nesting habitat and provides advice on how to manage scrub habitats for the benefit of Nightingales.

Anglia Water has been working with the BTO to research why Nightingales have declined by a staggering 90% in the UK since the 1960s and to share the effective habitat management practices developed on Anglian Water sites."
