BirdLife Botswana published its first review of waterbird counts in Botswana in 2001 covering the period 1991-2000. Now, ten years on, it is producing its second review, this time spanning a full twenty years of counts. This is a remarkable achievement, both for the relative consistency of the counts and for the effort made in ensuring that this information is available and analysed. Wetlands International congratulates Stephanie Tyler and BirdLife Botswana in producing this timely review, which provides an important case study for the world demonstrating the dynamic nature of wetlands and waterbirds during a period of changing climate. We look forward to seeing more data in the next ten years and hope that close attention is paid to the sound recommendations provided within this fascinating and useful review.
