09 days/year) from 1903 – 1950 to 1951 –1993. 3. Spatial and Intraspecific Constancy of Trends In our database on arrival dates, 22 species were studied in 10 or more areas. The set of species is not a random sample of all bird species and study areas are concentrated in Europe, but it offers a possibility to look at the constancy of trend within species (Table 4). In six species from sand martin Riparia riparia to pied flycatcher Ficedula hypoleuca, separate trend estimates are skewed statistically significantly to negative values.

CONSEQUENCE OF CHANGING TIMING Large changes in arrival and departure dates may have important consequences for other parts of a species’ annual cycle. , 2004, this volume). , the greenfinch Carduelis chloris, which has increased its winter population in Finland 6-fold in the last 40 years (Va¨isa¨nen and Solonen, 1997) and become simultaneously a rarer winter visitor to Northern Germany. , 2001). , 2001; Sippola, 2003).
