Great thanks. This would be good as my son and I conducted surveys and he is keen to know the findings and report back to his school. Do we need to subscribe to the Birdlife magazine?

Will there be any official report of this sparrow survey?
Author: sdavid    Time: 16/01/2017 08:48

Yes - I'd echo Captain's comment - will there be an official report?

These press releases are fine but it would be more interesting to see more detail on the survey effort, findings and any recommendations/conclusions.
