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. 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. The Greater Spotted Eagle mostly breeds from Ukraine eastward and in Serbia is only a rare but regular wintering species (several birds are recorded every winter).
