House sparrow populations have massively declined over the past 40 years, particularly in urban areas. We are looking at the extent of changes locally. 

We carried out a scientific survey across the city during Spring 2017 (click here for more about the 2017 Survey), and we continue to collect data from Brighton and Hove residents.

We would like to hear about any house sparrow colonies (or the absence of a colony) in the Brighton and Hove area. Details will be added to the Distribution Map

We would be particularly interested to hear if you have seen house sparrows in the areas below; so far we have had no reports from these places:

1. North of the A270 between Foredown Drive and Kings School

2. North of Preston Park station around London Road and Withdean

3. The areas around Hove Park School, Hangleton Manor and St Helen’s Park

4. The east end of Kemptown, south of Eastern Road

5. East of The Drive between the A270 and the cricket club 

Please fill in a separate form for each group of sparrows you see, or do not see. Some areas might look ideal for house sparrows but if you have never seen any there this is worth knowing about. It will help us discover if there are specific problem in some areas.

If possible, please complete the form below or, if you prefer, please print, complete and return this form:
