Bar charts

Short-term Alerts

Medium-term Alerts

Long-term Alerts

These stacked histograms show the Alerts status at each SPA during the short-, medium- and long-term. Just hover over one of the three icons on the right hand side and the histogram will change. Click on an image to enlarge.

Each bar represents an SPA identified by name, sized according to the number of waterbird species for which the site is designated, and divided according to the Alerts status of those species. Red = High Alert (>50% decrease), Orange = Medium Alert (25%-50% decrease), Grey = stable (25% decrease to 33% increase), Pale Green = Medium Increase (33%-100% increase), Dark Green = High Increase (>100% increase).

In the "Order by" dropdown, you can choose to view the histogram either by listing the sites alphabetically or in terms of severity of Alerts status.
