ABSTRACT
The article suggests of putting in place some of the measures to help wildlife if set-aside is to be abandoned. It says that set-aside has helped a number of declining farmland birds, notably the rare stone-curlew, whose recovery has been one of the most successful in England. It states that farmland bird numbers have already fallen by 40% and are likely to drop another 5% if the benefits of set-aside are not replicated through new environmental requirements and more money for agri-environment schemes in the long run.
