Kennedy Warne birds, birdsong and more

The Garden Bird Survey is upon us again. Kennedy talks about the trends from the results of a decade's worth of these surveys, which anyone can contribute to. Among the encouraging recent trends is the reappearance of kereru in people's back yards. Sightings are up by more than 50% over the past five years, and up a heartening 66% in Wellington. And albatrosses have been in the news with the inaugural World Albatross Day celebrated last Friday, but many albatross species need protection from critical decline.
