Article summary

Aves-Charleroi indurtook a study in 1987 of the breeding birds in the open areas of the Fagne region. Following the Atlas of Belgium survey (1973-1977) the overall results indicate a rather unfavourable evolution. As a result mainly of human intervention. Woodlark and Whinchat have disappeared following the destruction of their respective habitats. Four species which are in decline in Belgium are also dwindling from the Fagne area : Yellow Wagtail, Stonechat, Great Grey Shrike, Rook and Corn Bunting. Six new breeding species on the other hand have been reported since the late 1970s : Tufted Duck, Peregrine, Little-Ringed Plover, Common Sandpipier, Eagle Owl and Melodious Warbler. Regrettably, with the exception of the Melodious Warbler, they are rare or occasionnal breeeding birds.
