Fewer common farmland species than in 2007

Fluctuations in the number of breeding birds of farmland species (“farmland birds”) remained quite limited in the period 2007-2012, followed by significant declines between 2012 and 2014 and between 2021 and 2022. The decline of farmland birds in Flanders has been ongoing for decades and is part of a much wider, European trend.

Common forest birds have also been declining since 2015

The number of forest birds remained more or less stable from 2007 to 2015. Afterwards, a steady decline followed until 2021. Since 2020, the number of forest birds has been significantly lower than in the period up to 2015.

The number of breeding birds of various habitats (all common birds) was clearly higher in the period from 2008 to 2015 than in 2007. Afterwards, that number was at about the same level as in 2007.
