ME-1a. Breeding birds along the Zeeschelde, Belgium [ME-1a. Broedvogels langs de Zeeschelde]

Availability: Restricted

Description
Since 1993, breeding birds are studied outside the dikes by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest and volunteers of environmental organizations. more

In 1993 a first, complete basis inventory of the breeding stock was made. Abundances, distribution and ecology of the breeding birds were described. Also, a global relationship was portrayed between the incidence of species and vegetation. Since 1994 populations of breeding birds are monitored along the Zeeschelde by means of a relative counting method: the point-transect method. This method of monitoring was ended in 2005.

Parameters
Breeding birds density Methodology
Breeding birds density: Mapping method
Breeding birds density: Point-transect-method
The point-transect-method is a global counting method that exists in counting a series of points along a fixed route (see Hustings et al, 1985). During the breeding season the observer walks at least twice the route that was mapped out in advance.There are 3 relatively brief periods: 10-25 April, 10-25 May, 10-25 June. During the walking of the route the observer stops for 5 minutes at a number of points (200-250m seperated from each other) and takes notes of all observed birds.
