Ornithologists conducting mid-winter water bird count
Ornithologists are conducting a regular mid-winter water bird count at approximately seventy sites around the country. The time around mid-January is considered most appropriate for this activity since the birds flock around rivers, lakes and dams with a minimum of movement. In 2015 ornithologists registered 237,529 individuals from 31 different species. The annual monitoring goes back 50 years with wintering water bird populations monitored across Europe.
