Beached Bird Survey 2016

The UK Beached Bird Survey Report 2016 can now be downloaded by clicking the highlighted blue text above.

The 2016 survey involved 550 volunteers and recorded a higher number of beached birds than 2015, which was an all time low count, but still lower than the average figures over the last 25 years.  High counts of auks were found along the east coast, particularly Scotland and Orkney.  The proportion of oiled birds was also up on last year but below average levels.

The 2017 survey will take place on the weekend of 25/26 February.
