Twite are finches that live in remote upland and coastal areas, mainly in Scotland but with numbers in North Wales, Northern Ireland, and England. The whole UK population has undergone declines, but in England with a 72% decline between 1999 and 2013. A recent survey in 2021 has revealed only 12 breeding pairs remain in the Pennines. This local population is at risk of local extinction in the next 5 years. The English Twite Recovery Project was set up in 2008 with aim of stopping decline. We're looking for a Research Assistant to sample seed availability along the Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Norfolk Coasts to determine whether a shortage of food is a limiting factor in driving current declines.
