All-Russia Woodcock Survey to Run Until June 23

All-Russia Woodcock Survey to Run Until June 23


The press service of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of the Moscow Region has announced the start of the All-Russia Woodcock Survey. Hunters, game farm employees, ornithologists, and simply nature lovers can take part in the action.

The survey is conducted annually at the height of the woodcock's flight. This is the name of the current flight of male woodcocks. This event is very important for monitoring hunting resources. It will last until June 23.

The abundance of many migratory game birds is difficult to determine due to their secretive lifestyle and behavioral characteristics. The woodcock is one of them.

The message emphasizes that as a result of the statistical processing of the survey materials, not absolute data on the number of woodcocks will be obtained, but abundance indices showing the intensity of the flight.
