The Corn Crake (Crex crex)

The species has consequently been reclassified as Least Concern because global population declines to approach 30% (predicted in 2004) have not taken place, and there is little evidence to suggest that they will do so in the next 11 years. The reclassification has taken place on the basis of improved knowledge of the species' global extinction risk, as opposed to a genuine recovery to favorable conservation status across its range. The species remains a high conservation priority in significant parts of its range, and continued conservation interventions, research, and monitoring are essential (BirdLife 2019). This migratory bird is avoiding large wetlands and prefers wet meadows and grasslands. The threat is also collision, especially during migration (Shobrak 2011).
