Nine Wells bird survey by local resident John Meed

Local musician John Meed is a singer-songwriter of folk with a political angle – but there is more than one string to his bow.

He’s also made a study of local birds, and has been carrying out counts over the past few years; his research has provided valuable evidence in submissions to the Cambridge Local Plan. He has just released a report on farmland birdlife in the area south of Addenbrooke’s, including the lovely Nine Wells area and he very generously said I might share it.

So: to learn all about your singing and soaring neighbours: skylarks, corn buntings and yellowhammers and their contribution to local biodiversity, visit John’s website to read his report

What’s more, you can listen to tracks from John’s latest album at the same time. Enjoy!
