IWC January 2014 count dates


The preferred dates for the International Waterbird Census count are on the weekend closest to the 15 January (hence the middle of the month). In 2014 this is the weekend of the 18 – 19 January. Participants are encouraged to count on these days to reduce the possibility of double counting birds within or even between countries. However, if for any reason it is impractical or impossible to count on the official dates, counts from other dates in January are of course very much appreciated.
