Article summary

In Wallonia the Twite Carduelis flavirostris is now a very rare passage or winter visitor, with only five confirmed observations since 1999. In the past, small numbers of Twites were observed every year - mostly in the East of the region. This drastic decline underlines the importance of monitoring bird numbers throughout the year, including counts outside breeding season.
