Action: Mark fencing to avoid bird mortality
Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We have captured no evidence for the effects of marking fencing to avoid bird mortality on farmland wildlife.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Fences erected around young plantations (to exclude deer and other browsers) or to delineate property can be hard to see and low-flying birds such as grouse can be killed by flying into them.
