National trends

A provisional BBS trend is available for Sparrowhawk in Scotland but  sparrowhawks are currently recorded on fewer survey squares in Scotland than the lower threshold of 30 BBS squares routinely required on an annual basis to produce trends.

Regional trends

It is currently not possible to produce  regional trends in breeding numbers or productivity for Sparrowhawk as there are too few long-term studies for this species in Scotland.  We hope to address this in the future through encouraging more people to take up monitoring for this species.
