Wetland Bird Survey Data
The UK hosts internationally important numbers of over-wintering waterbirds, attracted here by relatively mild winters and the large tidal amplitudes, which ensure extensive areas of inter-tidal mudflat. One of the principal aims of WeBS is to provide data to facilitate their conservation.
WeBS Data have been used to undertake a large range of research projects and impact-related work. Some recent examples include examining the impacts of climate change and water quality on waders, determining declines and causes of decline on waterbirds on the UK's protected areas and assessing the impacts of habitat loss and disturbance on waterbirds.
WeBS Data are presented in the annual WeBS Report or are available as a data request.
