Waders on the move.
Disappearing Redshank, an aging Curlew population producing too few chicks, colour-ringed Sanderling that connect Greenland to Namibia, disturbed Turnstones and a booming Black-tailed Godwit population. Where do our waders come from and why are we seeing so many changes to numbers in northwest England?
Graham Appleton writes the popular blog seriesWaderTales, translating the latest wader research into articles for colour-ring readers, WeBS counters and birdwatchers more generally. Graham has been a ‘waderologist’ for nearly fifty years. He spent 16 years working for BTO, as a fundraiser and latterly the Director of Communications.
