Title of the project

Study on the impact of hedge maintenance on the Avesnois bocage birds in the North


The Avesnois Regional Nature Park, the Office national de la chasse et de la faune sauvage, the Fédération des chasseurs du Nord and the Fédération des chasseurs du Nord-Pas-de-Calais have decided to conduct a joint study to deepen knowledge of the relationship between the maintenance methods of hedges in this woodland region and birds.


Now there is a better understanding of interactions between species thanks to evaluation of the relationship between maintenance practices and the community of breeding birds in spring and autumn-winter.
