Fantastic Bird Fair Weekend

Posted Monday 18th August 2014 at 23:00 by Rick and Elis
Wader Quest has just enjoyed one of its best weekends ever in terms of garnering support and raising funds and awareness about what we do.
Mind you it didn't bode well when we arrived at the top of the hill overlooking the bird fair site and saw the valley was being rained upon in no uncertain way, but thankfully the weather was kind to us for most of the weekend.

Mountain Plover nest conservation on private crop fields.

Posted Wednesday 6th August 2014 at 21:54 by Rick and Elis
The Mountain Plover, often known as “Prairie Ghost”, is a small ground nesting bird living in the short-grass prairie ecoregion of Rocky Mountain West of North America.

Since the 1920’s, native short-grass prairie habitat has diminished as much as 52% due to conversion of these grasslands to crop land agriculture, diminished fire frequency, destruction of prairie dog towns and decline of native grazers.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/08/gu...over-nest.html

Little Curlew tracking project update.

Posted Wednesday 30th July 2014 at 22:04 by Rick and Elis

The most interesting thing that has happened since the last update is that LC 131943 has kept moving north. It arrived on the coast of China between 19th of June and 24th of June landing between Hong Kong and Shantou. On the 28th of June it was on an island 60 km east of Fuqing, in the Putian region (where 131945 and 131947 also stopped on migration).
From here, it moved to...

Benthos? What's that?

Posted Tuesday 22nd July 2014 at 21:53 by Rick and Elis
I am ashamed to say that I had to ask this question.

"It's what keeps your favourite group of birds alive and thriving for you to look at!" came the reply.

I was informed, for my education that benthos is the community of organisms that live under, on or over the bed of a body of water, be it freshwater or saltwater; scientifically called the benthic zone.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/07/be...hats-that.html
