Sharp fall in mallard numbers wintering in Scotland
24 November 2011

The number of mallard ducks wintering in Scotland has almost halved over the past 30 years, according to a joint report from conservation groups.

Other species found to be in decline were pochard, goldeneye, Greenland white-fronted geese and dunlin.

RSPB Scotland said milder weather could be persuading winter migrants to cut short their journeys.

Numbers of other species such as widgeon, gadwall, teal and pink-footed geese increased over the same period.
