Article summary

The 2015-2016 census of waterbirds took place in late autumn and during a mild and rainy winter. The numbers of many species were quite low; the weather conditions did not favour an influx of migratory species from Nordic areas and the fact that many open-water habitats remained free of ice allowed those birds already present to disperse rather widely. Those same conditions also allowed numerous over-winterings of several species of ardeidae which have recently been confirmed as nesting species (Cattle Egret Bubulcus ibis, Night Heron Nycticorax nycticorax, Little Egret Egretta garzetta and Great White Egret Casmerodius albus).This article presents the results of the waterbirds counts in Wallonia and in the Brussels Capital Region during winter 2015-2016. Further information on the over-wintering is to be found here after in this issue of the Aves journal, in the chronique saisonnière.
