The first confirmed breeding record of Firecrests in the UK was in the New Forest, Hampshire, in 1962. The New Forest has remained a stronghold for this species in the UK and, since 2000, numbers appear to have increased significantly. Here, we report on intensive survey work during 2009-11 and confirm that, with up to 270 recorded territories, the New Forest currently accounts for a third or more of all recorded Firecrest territories in the UK.
