Wadden Sea breeding birds, new research


This video says about itself:

Wadden Sea Flyway” phenomenon of migration and threats for birds

6 February 2014

Great video showing importance of migration routes and what we can do to make sure they are protected in the future.

BirdLife Partner Vogelbescherming Nederland (Netherlands Society for the Protection of Birds) helped to produce this video along with many other organizations showing the importance of the Wadden Sea Flyway.

A new report has been published about breeding birds in the Wadden Sea area in the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, from 1991 to 2013.

A few species increased then, like great cormorants, spoonbills and lesser black-backed gulls. Other species, like shelduck and Sandwich tern, were stable. Unfortunately, there was a decline in many other species, like hen harrier, avocet and black-tailed godwit. Herring gulls are down in the Dutch and German parts of the Wadden Sea, but up in the Danish part.
