The shrikes in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.
Bechet, G & Moes, M.
Summary : The Lesser Grey Shrike (Lanius minor) was a regular but rare breeding bird in the last century; it was no more observed since 1946. Up to the fifties the Woodchat Shrike (Lanius senator) was present all over the country but mainly in the south; nowadays it is only occasionally observed and the last successful breeding cases were confirmed in 1977 and 1987. The population of Great Grey Shrikes (Lanius excubitor) also declined because of habitat destruction and human disturbances. Still they remain present all over the country : the breeding population can be estimated to a hundred pairs. It is interesting to note that the rough winter 1996/1997 had no effect on the population size. The population of the Red-backed Shrike (Lanius collurio) seems to have stabilized during the last years and rather high densities are noted in some parts of the country . The relief of the country is favourable to the shrikes : hedges have been maintained and there are plenty of extensive agricultural sites.
