British Birds - June 2019

British Birds June 2019

The June 2019 issue of British Birds is now out.

Wetland restoration by the RSPB – what has it achieved for birds?

During 1990–2015, the RSPB acquired around 8,750 ha of land on which to restore wetland habitat. This restored land now supports more than 10% of the UK breeding populations of Black-necked Grebes, Bitterns, Cranes, Avocets and Bearded Tits. It also supports a high proportion of the Lapwings, Redshanks and Snipes that breed on lowland wet grassland in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The future challenges for wetland restoration are discussed.

A long-standing feral Indian Peafowl population in Oxfordshire, and a brief survey of the species in Britain
Indian Peafowl (Peacocks) were brought to Britain by the Romans. It is argued that some populations are self-sustaining and merit consideration for Category C of the British List.

Digital video aerial surveys of Red-throated Diver in the Outer Thames Estuary SPA
A new survey of the Outer Thames Estuary Special Protection Area confirms that the site supports by far the largest aggregation of non-breeding Red-throated Divers in UK waters.

If Peacock is a candidate for Category C then the BOU need to seriously consider changing the criteria. Helmeted Guineafowl must be in the same boat, along with Black Swan and Muscovy Duck.

You mean Peafowl, or would you only tick a male?
