The ecology and conservation of the Red-backed Shrike Lanius collurio breeding in Europe
Van Nieuwenhuyse, D., Nollet, F& Evans, E.
Red-backed shrikes Lanius collurio are in widespread decline across much of their range in north-west Europe. A review of the ecology of this bird suggests that populations of the large insects preyed upon by red-backed shrikes have declined as a result of habitat destruction and degradation due to changes in farming practice. Availability of nest-sites may also have decreased as a result of marginal land being increasingly brought into agricultural production. Management techniques which could improve habitat quality are suggested. However, the future of this species is probably dependent on a return to more extensive agricultural techniques and this will involve fundamental changes in international policies.
