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 with unfavourable European conservation status.

  • Biodiversity Lists - Long List: Current

  • 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 Directive Annex 2.2: Current

    Birds which may potentially be hunted under national legislation only within certain specified Member States. (Note that some species are protected by the national legislation of some Member States although hunting would potentially be legal under the Directive).

  • Birds of Conservation Concern- Amber, species of medium conservation concern: Current

    Amber list species are those whose population is in moderate decline, rare breeders, internationally important and localised species, and those of an unfavourable conservation status in Europe.

  • Convention on Migratory Species, African-Eurasian Waterbirds Agreement - Annex II: Current

    Conservation of migratory waterbirds, giving special attention to endangered species as well as to those with an unfavourable conservation status.

  • Convention on Migratory Species, Appendix 2: Current

    Migratory species having an unfavourable conservation status for which Range States are encouraged to conclude international agreements for their benefit.

  • Farm Environment Plan Guidance 007- Table 2: Current

    Species is listed in 'Table 2: Farm Environment Plan Species to be recorded in Part 2 of the FEP' of the DEFRA document 'Environmental Stewardship Farm Environment Plan Guidance 007: Plant & animal species in the Farm Environment Plan (FEP)'.

  • 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.

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

    Species “of principal importance for the purpose of conserving biodiversity” covered under Section 42 (Wales) 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.

  • Priority Species (Northern Ireland): Current

    The Northern Ireland Priority List of threatened species requiring conservation action in Northern Ireland. Criteria have been developed to ensure that Priority Species have been chosen using a scientific basis (See http-//www.habitas.org.uk/priority/criteria.html). The list is designed to assist those involved in the conservation of biodiversity by guiding decisions on where to target action and invest resources.

  • RDB Birds - candidate: Current

  • Scottish Biodiversity List of species of principal importance for biodiversity conservation: Current

    The Scottish Biodiversity List is a list of flora, fauna and habitats considered by the Scottish Ministers to be of principal importance for biodiversity conservation. The development of the list has been a collaborative effort involving a great many stakeholders overseen by scientists from the Scottish Biodiversity Forum. Completion of the list is the first time such a stocktake has been done in Scotland. The Scottish Biodiversity List is a tool for public bodies and others doing their Biodiversity Duty. The publication of the Scottish Biodiversity List satisfies the requirements of Section 2(4) of The Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004.

  • 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).
