Wetland birds (I-WeBS)

national I-WeBS survey
Irish Wetland Birds Survey (I-WeBS): some summary results for Co Waterford
The Irish Wetland Bird Survey (I-WeBS) - underway every winter 1994/95 onwards - is the national monitoring project for non-breeding waterbirds, wintering in Ireland, organised by BirdWatch Ireland and the NPWS section of the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government.  The project aims to be the primary source of data for the conservation of waterfowl populations and the wetland habitats on which they depend. 
Please note that the counts quoted below are waterfordbirds.com and provide only a selective summary of available information.  These counts should not be quoted elsewhere without contacting the website compilers.  Preferably, please contact the I-WeBS Office at BirdWatch Ireland for the official I-WeBS dataset.  Text updated 16 July 2010..
