National and international importance of the delta area
In the report "Delta area: national and international top area for birds", is shown how important the delta area is for waterbirds. The delta area is an important breeding, stopover and/or wintering area for many bird species. During migration, 1 million birds can use the delta area compared to 3 million birds in the Wadden Sea, therefore the area is internationally important. The delta is also important for breeding birds, such as sandwich and common terns, Kentish plovers and Eurasian spoonbills. We discuss the status, trends, threats and future for waterbirds in the delta region. The project was commissioned by Birdlife Netherlands.
