Self-funded MRes – Assessing the effects of coppice rotation and ash dieback on bird species distribution in a managed woodland

The study site is Bradfield Woods in Suffolk, eastern England. Bradfield Woods is a rare example of managed mixed species coppice, dominated by common ash (Fraxinus excelsior), hazel (Corylus avellana), birch (Betula spp.) and alder (Alnus glutinosa) which is typically cut on a rotation of 20 to 25 years.

(BBSRC DTP) Avian flight dynamics and control - a multidisciplinary approach

Gliding flight is a core mode of locomotion used by owls during predation. As well as being known as silent gliders, recently owls have been shown to exhibit high aerodynamic efficiency (low drag) during gliding, achieved through careful manipulation of their wings and tail (Song et al, 2020, Cheney et al 2020).
