BITTERN

Scientific name: Botaurus stellaris
Priority species listed in Annex 1 of Birds Directive 2009/147/EC

In the target area in the latest years wintering isolated specimens have been recorded, but data collected show a trend of “regularization” of records compared to the past. Most records are referred to marginal winter periods (October-November and February-March) as a clear hint that hunting and related disturbance has a preminent role in strongly reducing wintering opportunity of the species in the target area.
