EBCC Board and EBBA2 Steering Comittee organized a meeting in Kyiv, Ukraine. The meeting took place in hotel Druzhba in Kyiv, between 16 and 17 April, 2015. On 16 and 17 April the agenda of EBBA2 development as well as EBCC business were discussed.
The Atlas of German Breeding Birds (Atlas Deutscher Brutvogelarten: ADEBAR) has just been published.
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.
