EuroBirdwatch – in general
EuroBirdwatch is an event which was first organized 1993. Every year up to 40 countries and Europe and Central Asia join to mark autumn bird migration. During these 23 years, more than 1,1 million people participated in more than 36 000 events. EuroBirdwatch aims to encourage people of all ages to go observe and enjoy birds, and to show the wonders of bird migration and the necessity of bird and flyway conservation. It also draws attention to the efforts being made to save endangered bird species and their habitats.
Migration counts in each country are organised either through a network of counting stations manned by experienced birdwatchers or through field trips to important bird areas. The numbers are collated by the country’s national BirdLife partner and then passed on to the European centre.
