Abstract [sv]

Regular counts of wintering waterfowl have been undertaken as a part of the InternationalWaterfowl Census (IWC) and the National Swedish Environmental Monitoring Program since 1964.After the first years, a network of annually surveyed sites was established for the calculation of annualindices. Country-wide surveys (also including aerial counts) were undertaken 1971–1974, 1987–1989,1992–1993 (partial) and 2004. During the survey period, increasing trends were found in Mallard(Anas platyrhynchos), Tufted Duck (Aythya fuligula), Pochard (Aythya ferina), Goldeneye (Bucephalaclangula), Red-breasted Merganser (Mergus serrator), Mute Swan (Cygnus olor) and Cormorant(Phalacrocorax carbo). Some of these trends reflect genuine population changes; others are related tochanging winter conditions, e.g. the establishment of a new wintering tradition for Wigeon (Anaspenelope). Tufted Duck and Goldeneye decreased in the south and increased in the northern part of thecoast. Mallard, on the other hand, increased in some coastal sites but not in others, but this species isalso common inland.
