Five Of The Rarest Birds In The Uk

1. Hawfinch
The Hawfinch Is the UK's largest finch, and has a massive and powerful bill that is used to crack open nuts. It has declined in many areas of Britain, and is one of the hardest birds to see in the UK. It lives in woodlands, mainly on trees that produce nuts and fruits. 

2. Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

The Lesser spotted woodpecker is now one of our rarest birds, It's also the rarest and smallest Woodpecker in the UK. We have lost 3 out of 4 pairs since the 1970s. It's favorite habitat is the woodlands, where there are lots of beetle larva and moths to eat.   

3. Willow Tit 

Alongside the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, the Willow tit has become the rarest woodland bird in the UK! Since 1970, numbers have declined by a shocking 91%, and experts are not sure why! They feed on Insects, Fruit and Berries. Experts estimate there to be around 3000 of them left.

4. Spotted Flycatcher 

The Spotted Flycatcher is a boring looking woodland bird, but is one of the most interesting birds to watch as it has incredible insect catching skills, hence the name. Unfortunately there are now 6 times less Spotted Flycatchers in the Britain than just 30 years ago.    

5. Wood Warbler 

One of the most beautiful and biggest warblers in Europe, unfortunately they are quite rare to see in the Uk, although there are a fair amount in Wales. They mainly feed on insects and spiders. They inhabit beach and oak woodlands.
