The EBBC has made the latest bird breeding maps available on the European Breeding Bird Atlas 2  website. This is a valuable resource to understand more about the breeding distribution and abundance of Europe’s birds, including waterbirds and wetland dependent birds.

The European Breeding Bird Atlas 2 is an award winning publication released in 2021 which collates records of breeding birds across Europe. It is a valuable resource to understand the status and distribution of European birds and compliments non-breeding counting efforts such as the International Waterbird Census. The new website gives access to interactive distribution maps of all European breeding birds and provides much more information about this important project. It is a welcome addition to the printed Atlas, which includes further species’ details and summary chapters.
