Designations
  • Biodiversity Lists - Middle List: Elapsed

    Middle list of globally threatened/declining species from the 1995 Steering Group Report, for which action plans or species statements have been prepared since 1995. A subset of the Long list, and inclusive of all species on Short list. No longer in use.

  • Bird Population Status - red: Elapsed

    Red list species are those that are Globally Threatened according to IUCN criteria; those whose population or range has declined rapidly in recent years; and those that have declined historically and not shown a substantial recent recovery.

  • Birds of Conservation Concern- Red - species of high conservation concern: Elapsed

    Red list species are classified as ‘high conservation concern’ and include those species that are globally threatened according to IUCN criteria; those whose population or range has declined rapidly in recent years; and those that have declined historically and not shown a substantial recovery in recent years.

  • Birds of Conservation Importance (BOCI) - Uncommon and rapidly or historically declining British bir: Elapsed

    Species requiring monitoring of populations and the preparation of International Species Action Plans to ensure effective conservation. Qualifying criteria- 1. Decline – extensive (>50%) decline in GB breeding population over previous 25 years and with population of <100,000. 2. Decline – extensive (>50%) decline in GB breeding range over previous 25 years and with population of <100,000. 3. Decline – historical population decline during and since the 19th century, and with a population of <100,000. Other criteria- 4. Rare breeder- 5-year running mean of 0.8-300 breeding pairs in GB. 5. International- significant proportion (>20%) of European breeding population found in GB. 6. International- significant proportion (>20%) of European non-breeding population found in GB. 7. Localised- >50% of GB breeding population in ten or fewer sites. 8. Localised- >50% of GB non-breeding population in ten or fewer sites. 9. Species of European concern- species of Global Conservation Concern or unfavourable European conservation status.

  • Priority Species: Elapsed

    Species for which Action Plans have been/are being written.

  • RDB Birds - 2: Elapsed

    Rare breeder (<300 pairs).

  • RDB Birds - 3: Elapsed

  • Biodiversity Lists - Middle List: Current

    Middle list of globally threatened/declining species from the 1995 Steering Group Report, for which action plans or species statements have been prepared since 1995. A subset of the Long list, and inclusive of all species on Short list. No longer in use.

  • Bird Population Status - red: Current

    Red list species are those that are Globally Threatened according to IUCN criteria; those whose population or range has declined rapidly in recent years; and those that have declined historically and not shown a substantial recent recovery.

  • Birds of Conservation Concern- Red, species of high conservation concern: Current

    Red list species are those whose population or range is rapidly declining, recently or historically, and those of global conservation concern

  • Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 - Species of Principal Importance in England (sec: Current

    Species “of principal importance for the purpose of conserving biodiversity” covered under section 41 (England) of the NERC Act (2006) and therefore need to be taken into consideration by a public body when performing any of its functions with a view to conserving biodiversity.

  • RDB Birds - 2: Current

    Rare breeder (<300 pairs).

  • RDB Birds - 3: Current

    Declining breeder (>50% sustained decline since 1960).

  • UK Biodiversity Action Plan priority species: Current

    The UK List of Priority Species and Habitats contains 1150 species and 65 habitats that have been listed as priorities for conservation action under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UK BAP).

  • Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (Schedule 1 Part 1): Current

    Birds which are protected by special penalties at all times.

  • Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (Schedule 4): Current
