In total, over 12.5 million waterbirds occur in Britain during the winter. Estimates of the numbers of non-breeding waterbirds visiting Britain are important for the birds' conservation, both for status assessments and for the identification and designation of nationally and internationally important sites. This paper collates data from a wide range of sources, principally for the period 2004/05 to 2008/09, and produces estimates for 92 different species or populations, some using novel analytical methods developed by the authors. For 15 species or populations, formal estimates of wintering numbers are presented for the first time.The estimates demonstrate that species such as Avocet Recurvirostra avosetta, Gadwall Anas strepera and, especially, Little Egret Egretta garzetta have increased substantially in the last decade, while others, such as Greenland White-fronted Goose Anser albifrons flavirostris, Dunlin Calidris alpina and Common Pochard Aythya ferina, have declined markedly.

This is the fourth major review of the status of birds occurring in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man.We present Red, Amber and Green lists of conservation concern based on assessments using objective listing criteria and using the most recent data.The listing criteria assess global conservation status, historical population decline, recent population decline (numbers and geographical range), European conservation status, rarity, localised distribution, and international importance of populations. Some changes have been made to the criteria since the last assessment, and the effect of these changes is discussed. Of 246 species assessed, 52 (21.1%) have been placed on the Red list, 126 (51.2%) on the Amber list and 68 (27.6%) on the Green list. Eighteen species have moved onto the Red list since the last assessment in 2002, and six have moved from Red to Amber.
