Article summary

The stars of this winter were the two overwintering Wallcreepers Tichodroma muraria, the first Lesser Scaup Aythya affinis ever seen in Wallonia, several rare species of gull (at least 2 Iceland Gulls Larus glaucoides, 1 Glaucous Gull Larus hyperboreus, 1 Kittiwake Rissa tridactyla and the second sighting of a Ring-billed Gull Larus delawarensis in Wallonie. A dormitory of Bramblings Fringilla montifringilla wasfollowed in southern Luxembourg. Other notable observations include a Shore Lark Eremophila alpestris in the Ardennes from January 6 to February 3, for a time it was accompanied by a Snow Bunting Plectrophenax nivalis, one record of a Lapland Bunting Calcarius lapponicus and the new over-wintering of some Bearded Tits Panurus biarmicus and Penduline Tits Remiz pendulinus.Several species of water fowl were low in number this winter. Also, and this despite the abundance of small mammals, there were relatively low numbers of raptors: Hen Harriers Circus cyaneus, Common Buzzards Buteo buteo and Short-eared Owls Asio flammeus. For the first time in several years no Rough-legged Buzzard Buteo lagopus were seen and there were relatively few Red Kites Milvus milvus. On the other hand, many species of gulls were well represented, including in particular the Caspian Gull Larus cachinnans. Although there were few Waxwing Bombycilla garrulus and Common Redpoll Carduelis flammea and though Corn BuntingM Emberiza calandra continued to decline, other species show more normal abundances comparatively to recent winters (Common Kestrel Falco tinnunculus, Long-eared Owl Asio otus, Wren Troglodytes troglodytes, Dunnock Prunella modularis, European Robin Erithacus rubecula, Black Redstart Phoenicurus ochruros, Common Stonechat Saxicola torquatus, Blackbird Turdus merula, Common Chiffchaff Phylloscopus collybita...).
