Farming for farm wildlife in the East of England

These maps show the priority areas for ELS farm wildlife options in the East of England region.

There are maps for the following groups of options:

Darker colours: Higher priority areas that are most likely to be relevant for the particular group of options. These areas contain stronger populations of species and have patterns of agricultural land use that are more likely to respond to the use of the options.

Lighter colours: Lower priority areas that are less likely to be relevant, although it is recognised that within these areas significant local exceptions will occur.
