Birds of Conservation Concern in Ireland 2014 - 2019

BoCCI is an assessment of the conservation status of all regularly occurring birds on the island of Ireland. The criteria on which the assessment is based include international conservation status, historical breeding declines, recent population declines (numbers and range in breeding and nonbreeding seasons), European conservation status, breeding rarity, localised distribution, and the international importance of populations.

The conservation status of species is signalled using a traffic light system. Of the 202 species assessed, 37 were placed on the Red list, 91 on the Amber list and 74 on the Green list. The full rationale for the designations are outlined in the BoCCI 2014 – 2019 publication at the bottom of the page.
