The population of one of Scotlandís rarest birds the corncrakes has increased for the first time in three years, a wildlife charity said yesterday. The number of male singing corncrakes, an elusive farmland species which migrates to Scotland from sub-Saharan Africa, rose this year to just under 1,200, RSPB Scotland said.

Strange that I found this report in a Maltese newspaper site, not one from the UK. Perhaps it's not a news worthy event in Scotland?

There was an article in the Daily Mail a couple of days ago and on the RSPB website in September.

For conservation in general and birds in particular, I follow the RSPB twitter feed @Natures_Voice
