January waterbird counts
I'm hoping most of you have made firm plans to count at least some sites.
Attached is what might be considered a list of target species. These are those on the AEWA watch list, the species of conservation concern for which member states are charged with maintaining or improving the species "conservation status".
Take a note of the 1% levels for these species. If any site looks like meeting them please try and count as accurately as possible and even consider proving these numbers rather than spending time on other more difficult birds.
Most of all, enjoy.
