In January, specialists determined which birds are spending winter in our country, with the latest data showing the territorial distribution of birds in Belarus while revealing new facts relating to the over-wintering of rare species.
In 2010, over 500 people took part in the campaign, logging 96 wintering bird species. In total, over 60,000 birds were recorded, with large new wintering sites located for aquatic birds: in Mozyr, Soligorsk and Slutsk. Great tits and house and tree sparrows were the most frequent visitors at winter bird tables.
