Latest figures from the Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) reveal that numbers of Meadow Pipits declined by nearly a third in Northern Ireland between 2010 and 2011. Numbers had remained stable from the start of the BBS in 1994 until 2005, but after that a decline was observed, and between 2010 and 2011 numbers fell by 27%. Meadow Pipits Anthus pratensis are widespread across Northern Ireland, favouring areas of open country and grassland.
