The main breeding areas are located on the lower peat soils in the northwest half of the country. The breeding area has some­what contracted (except for the core areas) compared to the 1970s. Census results suggest an increase up to about 1980, followed by a slight decrease afterwards. However, local trends may be conflicting. Common Pochards apparently did nog benefit from improved water quality and recovery of aquatic vegetations. Stagnation in breeding numbers (1700-2100 bp in 1998-2000, clearly more than the 1000-1300 in 1973-77, but at the same level as in 1979-85) contrasts with the continuing increase of Tufted Duck.
