Breeding Atlas 10-km square summaries 2008-2009

Main Breeding Atlas page
 
The tables below summarises the breeding status of known or potential breeding species in Co Waterford during the 2008 and 2009 Atlas seasons, by 10-km square. For the national Bird Atlas project (two further seasons 2010 & 2011 to complete), the aim will be to fill in the gaps and also upgrade the majority of species/squares to confirmed breeding. Only squares with the majority of their land in Co Waterford are listed below - fieldwork is also underway in other squares along the Co Waterford border. Species not considered to be currently breeding in Co Waterford are excluded, as are records of Peregrine; additional records are  available for local atlas purposes from 2006 or 2007 but these will not be used for the national atlas.
 
CONF = confirmed breeding (nest, food for young, fledged young etc);  PROB = probably breeding (pair, territory, display, building etc);  poss = possibled breeding (bird in suitable havitat or singing male); unsp = unspecified status; fly = direct over-flight only; summ = summering non-breeder; migr = migrant or late winterer.
