These changes have all occurred in a short space of time and it will be interesting to see what new species feature regularly during the winter by the middle of the 21st century. 43 01 pp10-48 1705 30/6/09 14:43 Page 44 MIGRATION by Steve Lister INTRODUCTION Leicestershire and Rutland are unlikely to feature on many birdwatchers’ lists of the top counties for bird migration, given their position in the middle of England. Nevertheless, there is a mass of evidence gathered over the years that reveals substantial movement through and over the two counties.
The likely future impact of climate change could see, amongst others, the Cattle and Great White Egrets, Spoonbill, Hoopoe and European Bee-eater becoming regular British breeding species. On a more local level, plans for the development of new lagoons and an expansion of the reserve at Rutland Water may help species such as the Eurasian Teal and the Common Pochard to re-establish breeding populations. On the negative side, the further intensification of farming is a concern and could precipitate the local extinction of declining species like the Turtle Dove and the Corn Bunting.
Add to this scene the teeming mass of one of the counties’ large gull roosts and it is easy to see why many birdwatchers visit this land-locked area to view this fine spectacle. There are currently just under 30 regularly recorded species that occur either almost entirely as winter visitors to the counties or are present in much higher numbers in winter than at other times of year. The species involved are shown in Table 4.
