Hi Ian,

There is nothing in that article which links ringing with decline of bird numbers in the Adelaide Hills. I think what Graham (and others who read your post would like to know), is what is the link between banding and decline of bird numbers in the Adelaide Hills? Have there been studies done on this link or is it one of those things that only requires common sense to work out?

Hello Graham

Good question; See

There is little doubt that some Mount Lofty Ranges bird species are in trouble, although it is also true that some observers are skeptical about such alarmist predictions, believing the claims are possibly motivated by a quest for further funding rather than to contribute objectively to useful conservation strategies.
