East Budleigh Italian type Sparrow Update

The Italian type Sparrow is still present in East Budleigh today.
It was trapped and ringed on the 9th April with feather samples removed for DNA testing. This was all done under a Special Methods Licence granted by the BTO. If anyone is still interested in seeing the bird,
please view only from the designated areas as before, shown on the map below.
