Birds of the Solent 1992


This work has been produced as part of the Nature Conservancy Council's (NCC's) Seabirds at Sea project.

This report summarises the results of a study of the Solent carried out between December 1990 and January 1992. The study was designed to locate important areas for waterfowl (wildfowl and waders) and seabirds breeding and visiting the Solent.

A literature review provided most of the information on waterfowl in estuarine sites. Survey work in 1991 was mostly directed toward seabirds and concentrated on the non-estuarine shoreline and offshore areas.

Please note that this resource has been produced from a scan of an original document. You may therefore experience fluctuations in quality.
