Sample text

Fairly numerous, breeding in coastal areas in virtually every maritime county in Britain and Ireland, and regularly in two inland counties of England. The total British population (including non-breeders, but excluding birds of the year) is possibly in the region of 50,000 birds, a figure which is based on the numbers in late summer on the main moulting grounds on the north coast of Germany (Atkinson-Willes 1963). The Shelduck decreased locally in the 19th century, reaching a low point in Suffolk, for example, in about 1886 (Ticehurst 1932).

Between about 1900 and 1939. The Bittern has recently become re-established in Sweden following its extinction there earlier this century (Curry-Lindahl 1959). (Map 17) . Order: ANSERIIFORMES Ducks, Geese and Swans ~~-'~-" .. -' .. Mallard Anas platyrhynchos No evidence of marked change. A fairly numerous and widespread resident, breeding in all parts of the British Isles. The best evidence on present population trends is provided by the National Wildfowl Count indices, which, though referring to the wintering population, including immigrants, do also provide by February and March usable indices of the size of the native population which then predominates.

Map 15) Little Bittern Ixobrychus minutus Probably bred sporadically in 19th century, and also in 1947. Although there are no confirmed British breeding records, Little Bitterns are believed to have nested occasionally in East Anglia in the 19th century, in Kent in 1947 and, doubtfully, in Surrey in 1956, when a pair summered. The species breeds right across central and southern Europe as far west as the Netherlands, and occasional breeding in southern England seems conceivable in the future, though the number of suitable localities is very small.
