This report outlines the methods used during the 2004/05 annual survey of wintering inshore waterbirds in the UK, using aerial surveys and shore-based counts. It also presents the recorded numbers and diurnal distributions of the species observed in each survey area, and discusses considerations for future surveys.
During December 2004, February 2005 and March 2005, JNCC conducted aerial surveys of wintering aggregations of seaducks, divers and grebes within a number of UK inshore areas. The aim of the surveys was to collect data on the wintering numbers and distribution of inshore waterbirds in areas of the UK known to be important for this group of species. The surveys were carried out as part of the JNCC annual programme of surveillance of wintering inshore waterbirds in the UK.
