European Bewick’s and Whooper Swan Census 11th/12th January 2020 – help filling the gaps!

Since the 1980s - and every five years since the 1990s - special synchronous counts of Bewick´s and Whooper Swan are carried out in Europe in order to regularly update population estimates at international level. The censuses are coordinated by the Swan Specialist Group of Wetlands International. On 11th / 12th January 2020, a European census of the two yellow-beaked swan species is scheduled. Good coverage is important for both species: in the case of the Whooper Swan, for example, around one third of the North-Western European population spents their winter in Germany, while in the case of the Bewick´s Swan it also can be up to 30% in mild winters. In Germany we also count Mute Swans because they are often associated with the other two species.

The census takes place on the same weekend as the international waterbird census, so that the coverage of many resting areas is guaranteed. Especially north of the low mountain ranges, where the large Bewick´s and Whooper Swan flocks can be found, additional counters are needed. Therefore: Count on the European Swan Census 2020!

We have summarised all the important information on synchronous counting in a leaflet (german only). You can download it here as a PDF file.

Additional information on how to count swans can be found in the news of Sunday, December 1st, 2019.

Important: If you are planning additional surveys and are not yet included in the waterbird census etc. (or would like to count outside your counting areas), please contact your coordinator BEFORE to avoid double counting and close counting gaps. Thank you very much!

The results of the international censuses of Bewick’s and Whooper Swan were recently published in Wildfowl magazine. The articles, which document massive changes in both species, can be downloaded from the following links:

We are looking forward to your help in the European Swan Census with hopefully wonderful weather on 11th/12th January 2020!
