In its new publication, The State of Birds in Switzerland. Report 2015, the Swiss Ornithological Institute offers a brief overall appraisal: How well are breeding and visiting birds in Switzerland doing? What are the newest trends of threatened as well as widespread species?

Composite indices for waterbirds show an overall positive trend for waterbirds, though marine specialist species generally have a less favourable trend than coastal or freshwater specialist species.

The European Cement Association and Birdlife adopt joint position on EU nature directives: Better implementation to benefit biodiversity

In the context of the ongoing evaluation of the Birds and Habitats Directives1, the experience shared by both the cement industry and NGOs demonstrates that whilst the Directives are fit for purpose, their implementation at national level needs to be tackled.
