10,000 Birds

Illegal spring hunting and round-ups of moulting birds are taking place on the Russian breeding grounds and illegal shooting continues in Norway. They do breed in the Balkans, in Montenegro and Greece where I observed them, as well as in Bulgaria and Romania. Cases of illegal shooting are still reported (…in 2009 in the Danube Delta) and hunting is considered one of the main threats for the east Asian population.
