Reading University Research into Feeding Garden Birds
Autumn 2019

Reading University

From Reading University:
We are two 3rd year zoology and biology students at Reading University currently doing a research project on how bird feeders affect the transmission of diseases between garden birds. Part of this study involves setting up bird feeders with camera traps in a selection of gardens around Reading which we would need to access and monitor 2-3 times a week from September to December 2019. We are looking for anyone who would be happy for us to set these feeders with camera traps in their garden over this time (we will supply the feeders, cameras and bird feed, as well as all of the setting up and recording). If you are interested and think you could help, please contact me (Annie Allen) on 07722019119 or email
