Abstract

The UK SPA selection guidelines for the identification of SPAs advise that sites should be identified in two stages (Stroud et al 2001). While Stage 1 identifies areas that are likely to qualify for SPA status, Stage 2 further considers these areas to select the most suitable areas in number and size for SPA classification. The report presents the numbers of wintering aggregations of inshore waterbirds and indicates if species exceed their respective population thresholds under the UK SPA Selection Guidelines within the area of search.
