Article summary

The breeding population of the Nutcracker in the Western Ardenne was estimated from 1989 to 1991 using the play-back method. Contact was made in 49 sites (Fig. 1) and the population amounts to at least 60 pairs. These figures denote an increase as well as a geographic expansion. Details of the habitats occupied are given (Table 1), in particular conifer woodlands (Fig. 2 to 6) and abundance of hazel (Fig. 7).
