The report summarises information on trends in more than 3100 species within the major taxonomic groups assessed. The report presents a new Watchlist Indicator, a cross-taxa priority species indicator that tracks changes in the abundance of 155 high priority species for conservation for which trend data are available. This demonstrates that, overall, conservation efforts to reverse the declines in these species have not yet succeeded, and highlights the need to refine the Watchlist Indicator and produce comparable measures from a broader range of species. This report is an excellent use of the population trends produced with the high quality bird data collected in the BTO’s major partnership schemes.
