Beschrijving
Count of observed waterbirds during a survey in Kenya in 1995. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Nasirwa, O.; Oyugi, J.; Jackson, C.; Lens, L.; Bennun, L.; Seys, J. (1995). Surveys of waterbirds in Kenya, 1995: Lake Victoria wetlands, south Kenya coast and Tana River dams. Centre for Biodiversity Research Reports: Ornithology, 20. National Museums of Kenya: Nairobi. 22 pp. meer

In February 1995, eight sites around Lake Victoria and beaches, reefs and creeks along the Kenyan coast from Vanga to Sabaki River mouth (around 220 km of shoreline, split into 15 sites) were surveyed and waterbirds counted. In March 1995, waterbirds were counted on the five large dams along the upper Tana River. These represent the first waterbird surveys for almost all of these sites. Five sites (Vanga Creek, Kilifi-Mida Beach, Malindi Marine Park, Sabaki River Mouth and Masinga Dam) qualify as Globally Important Bird Areas on the basis of their waterbird populations (and hence as potential Ramsar sites).
