The files presented below contain aggregated birdstrike data, reported to the CAA. The CAA intends to update this information annually.

Note on interpretation of UK birdstrike data

  • The CAA's view is that the volume of birdstrikes reported at a particular airport or aerodrome does not imply greater hazard.
  • Users should exercise caution in forming any conclusion or opinion based on quantitative data alone.
  • The CAA disclaims all responsibility for any interpretation which might be made by others in receipt of this birdstrike data.
