The birdsong is getting louder: Why an increasing number are making Denmark their home due to climate change

Several bird species are finding their way from southern to due to the warming . Meanwhile, other species are increasing their presence due to reduced emissions and improved air quality.

From Spain to to Denmark
The latest climate-related example is the black ibis. Talking to TV2tells Knud Flensted from the Ornithological Society that the bird first moved north from Spain to France and is now seen in Denmark as well as in Great Britain.

In the last month alone, 256 observations of the species have been registered in Denmark. Flensted largely attributes the growth to that makes the country more hospitable to the species.

Species such as the heron and the stilt runner are also becoming more common in the country. Flensted says that so far there have been no negative consequences of non-native bird species finding their home in the Danish sky.

of prey draw attention to their presence
While the presence of black ibises and other non-native species has not given rise to problems, the Danish Ornithological Society advises foresters in to be careful about whether birds of prey aggressively protect their nests during the breeding season.

Two women in the region were recently the attack of buzzards that get less . According to Flensted, the buzzard population has increased significantly over the past 30 years. Instead of climate change, buzzards and other birds of prey have been increasing in the population as a result of improved air quality as a result of the country’s aggressive climate policies.

Flensted says that attacks by some birds of prey, including the buzzard, are not uncommon during the breeding season, which lasts from late May to late June. He advises runners and in the region to be alert and avoid approaching nests.
