In south-west Belgium, the breeding of the kingfisher was monitored for more than 10 years. During this period, 158 banks were regularly surveyed. Alterations or potential threats were identified: natural erosion, cattle trampling, disturbance from kayak-riders or anglers and, last but not least, consolidation works. Only 56 banks (35.4 %) can de considered as "safe". However, since the recent (2001) legal restrictions about the navigation on small rivers, 12 more banks are now safe too. Cattle trampling appears as the main threat (55 sites). However, the enforcement of the law regulating the fences along the rivers could easily solve the problem. Nineteen banks were completely destroyed for different purposes: navigation, road retaining walls or simply anti-erosive measures. Most of these works were undertaken along the river Meuse, the best nidification habitat of the area. (11 photos) [less ▲]

The stomach contents of 40 great cormorants shot during "regulation" operations in the Pas-de-Calais have been analysed. Eight stomachs were empty and 426 fishes belonging to 15 species were recovered in the others. The dominant prey is the roach. Other regular prey are the common bream and the perch. Other fish (Salmonids, pike, pikeperch, ruffe, rudd, lamprey) appear in less than 5 stomachs. Most of the prey are small sized fish, less than 12 cm (total length). The biomass of 80% of the preys is less than 20g. However, the role of the greater fish in the diet must be emphasized: those weighing more than 200g (1% in numbers) reprensent 20% of the ingested biomass. [less ▲]

The woodmouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) and yellow-necked fieldmouse (Apodelnus flavicollis) are sympatric and even syntopic in many regions throughout their European range. Their field discrimination on the basis of external characters is a real challenge for many fields of research. The problem is even more complicated in the Alpine chain where they live sympatrically with a third similar species: A. alpicola. A rapid and simple method is proposed to discriminate the three species in processing field-collected biopsies as well as ethanol-preserved museum samples. [less ▲]

Conflicting hypotheses have been formulated regarding the origin of wood mouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) populations in northern Africa. In this study, the mtDNA restriction patterns of mice (n = 28) collected in Tunisia and Morocco are compared with those of representatives from southern Europe (n = 102). The neighbour-joining tree confirms the existence of the three lineages previously found in the Mediterranean area: western, Tyrrhenian-Balkan, and Sicilian. The western group is isolated from the two others, with bootstrap values of 89 and 95%. Northern African patterns are included in the western group. Their variability is low, the same pattern being shared by five Tunisian and all Moroccan animals (n = 18), caught either in the north of the country (Cap Spartel) or in the south (Marrakech). This implies that northern African wood mouse populations have a southwestern European origin and that their presence in the region is probably recent, which corresponds to both paleontological data and the hypothesis of anthropogenic introduction.

This paper reports for the first time, the presence of Platypsyllus castoris Rits. in Belgium. The insects were collected on a road killed European beaver found in Anseremme (Dinant) in December 1999. This beaver is one of those that were recently illegaly reintroduced in various parts of southern Belgium. [less ▲]

During the course of a study on the use of habitat by the common serotine bat in Belgium, we have had recourse to radiotracking and the prospecting with an ultrasonic detector. The results obtained with the two techniques used have been compared. The preferred habitats of the bats were found identical with the two techniques, with a preferece for leafy environments. However, the interpretation of the results affords different information depending on the technique adopted. We have thus compared the limits of each of the two techniques. In conclusion, the results obtained by radiotracking and with the ultrasonic detector are at the same time virtually the same but also complementary. [less ▲]
