This report outlines the methods used during the 2005/06 aerial surveys and shore-based counts, presents the recorded numbers and diurnal distributions of the species observed in each survey area, and discusses considerations for future surveys.
From December 2005 to February 2006, and in May 2006 the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) conducted aerial surveys and shore-based counts 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.
