  • Focal species

Abstract: 

PLANNED (as of August 2016) regular monitoring activities of the Park's Natura 2000 habitats are specified in the new Park Protection Plan (currently in the final project stage, pending final approval and implementation resolution by the Minister of Environment). They'll altogether comprise 32 habitats of Community Importance occurring in the Park, both forest and non-forest. The planned monitoring regime will involve appropriate monitoring grid/s of various resolutions (500, 250, 100, 1000 m - depending on the habitat) and established permanent observation plots according to the national biodiversity monitoring methodology applied countrywide by the Polish Chief Inspectorate for Environmental Protection (GIOŚ). The temporal regime: mostly every 5-6 years (sometimes every 3, 4 or 2 years). Usually the chief monitored parameter will be area of the habitat and its state (Natura 2000: FV, U1, U2), in some cases also presence and influence of invasive alien species. For the purpose of the Park's Protection Plan, nature inventory and assessment of the state of the above-mentioned 32 habitats, i.e. FV or U1 (no U2s or XXs, luckily) related to (a) habitat area, (b) habitat structure and function, and (c) future prospect - plus (d) the cumulative value - was conducted.

Doñana_waterbird_counts

Data Product Type: 

  • Bird

Abstract: 

Data on bird presence and abundance in Doñana is available since the 50ties, even before its protection. EBD-CSIC started standardized monitoring by aerial counts in the 70ties, initially focused on wintering birds but since de early 80ties counts are conducted monthly, and up to 50 bird species are identified in 52 counting areas within the marshes. Terrestrial bird count of main bird concentrations of Doñana have been conducted at the same time (both EBD-CSIC and Park Management) but were not standardized until 2002 by EBD-CSIC. Since then, monthly surveys have been conducted covering about 87 water bodies of the marshes and from fixed observation points (up to 196 water bird species are included). Additionally, each month, a transect (30 km) count of birds (all non-passerine species and Corvus corax) present at the beach and sea shore is done by car. Furthermore, during spring, colonial water bird nests are located and chicks ringed when possible. Several colonies have been monitored since the 80ties. Non-colonial waterbird nests are located monthly during the breeding season using linear transects on horse in the marshes, totalling about 65 km. These transects data are being collected since 2003. Earlier data on non-colonial breeding waterbirds are more disperse, although ringing activities have been done since the 70ties on regular bases.
