Abstract

The merlin Falco columbarius population in Kielder Forest has risen from ten pairs in 1982 to 29 in 1991 as a result of their ability to exploit new nesting opportunities along forest edges. An analysis of the breeding performance during 1988–1993 indicated there was no difference between territories on heather moorland and those adjacent to grass moorland associated with conifer forests; nor was there any difference in breeding performance between pairs nesting in disused carrion crow Corvus corone nests along the forest edge and other nest sites.
