Welcome to the website of the EBCC
There is presently great concern about local, regional and global loss of species. A recent study published in Ornis Svecica examined those breeding species and subspecies ("species") of birds that either established themselves or went extinct in Sweden in 1850 - 2009.
Workshop is focused on the introduction of online BirdID website and related field training to other countries.
EBBA2 pilot data provision of Haematopus ostralegus, Circus cyaenus, Larus ridibundus, Merops apiaster and Oenanthe oenanthe is now coming to its deadline. The map below shows the state of data provision to 6 January, 2015 (the countries in blue have delivered their data).There are still countries that have not provided their data yet (Ukraine,Iceland,Norway,Luxembourgh,Moldova,Georgia,Azerbaijan,Albania,Lithuania and Hungary) but we firmly believe that they will catch up with the deadline of 15 January 2015.
The report summarizes the activities of the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) between July and December 2014. In this period we mainly focused on exploration of improvements of the national farmland bird indicators. Collation of updated national species population trends and indices started in November. PECBMS team has recently increased its capacity - a new research officer, Anna Gamero, was recruited and became a part of the coordination team. Anna will lead the on further research activities in PECBMS.
EBBA2 pilot data provision of Haematopus ostralegus, Circus cyaenus, Larus ridibundus, Merops apiaster and Oenanthe oenanthe species has been very successful so far as you can see in the map below. The map shows the state of data provision to December 15, 2014 (the countries in blue have met their commitment).There are still countries that have not provided their data yet but we firmly believe that they will.
The first pilot data provision is an ongoing process that is beginning to be very fruitful. National coordinators from 15 countries have already provided data. Hopefully, we will gather data from the other countries soon and thus we will generate the first EBBA2 maps for Haematopus ostralegus, Circus cyaenus, Larus ridibundus, Merops apiaster and Oenanthe oenanthe.
