Wildfowl and other water-birds found dead in England and Wales in January-March, 1963

Hugh Boyd


In appeals published in the journal British Birds and in the Bulletin of the Wildfowl Trust bird-watchers were asked to report details of all birds found dead during and after the exceptionally cold spell from late December, 1962, to early March, 1963. Over 70 informants recorded nearly 4,000 wildfowl and water-birds, of 34 species, as well as noting the occurrence of uncounted quantities of several of these species. Records from Scotland, where the winter was comparatively less severe, are being dealt with in Scottish Birds.
