Abstract:The bird life on 200 acres of burnt woodland in East Sussex was noted in the first and fourth summer after burning. In the first breeding season in five habitats, two species, mistle-thrush and nightjar, were present. In the fourth, in five habitats, six species were present: tree pipit, willow-wren, and robin over the whole area; chaffinch, whitethroat and wood-pigeon on the fringe only. On unburnt forest, in twelve main habitats, thirty-six species were noted.
