📣 We have some wonderful news to share!

🪶🪺 Dartford warblers have made an impressive comeback reaching their highest ever number (183 pairs) on RSPB Love Nature reserves! They have also made a return to RSPB Arne’s heathland.

💚 In the 1960s the amber listed bird suffered a population crash, leaving just a few pairs in Dorset and the species on the brink of extinction in the UK. However, thanks to conservation efforts to create and restore heathland the bird has made a return! 

🤔Have you seen any around #RSPBArne recently?
