Mystery wader photo.

Posted Tuesday 20th January 2015 at 21:23 by Rick and Elis
Recently on our facebook page we posted a photo of a bird feeding with half of its head and all of its bill underwater which we have reproduced here. Bills are very important in identifying waders and so making this bird's ID a little tricky. If you didn't see that post have a guess what this bird is before scrolling down.

Great Knots and Bar-tailed Godwits with satellite transmitters in the East Asian-Aust

Posted Wednesday 31st December 2014 at 00:15 by Rick and Elis
Chris Hassell who is based in Broome in Western Australia reports that a number of Great Knots and Bar-tailed Godwits have had satellite transmitters attached to them to track their migration movements in the coming year for the EAAF satellite transmitter project being carried out by him, Ginny Chan, Lee Tibbitts and Theunis Piersma.

Sufficient numbers of Great Knot were caught on 22/10/2014 for the project's needs...http://www.waderquest.org/2014/12/gr...wits-with.html

Anniversary World Watch results

Posted Monday 8th December 2014 at 13:05 by Rick and Elis
The country with the highest list (and highest individual list) was from Peter Ericsson in Thailand with 33 species, and he still had some species that he could potentially have connected with if he had not been working that day. Additional species such as Greater Painted-Snipe, Malaysian Plover, White-faced Plover are all generally available as well as the potential for pratincoles and jacanas from that country all of which just goes to show what a great wader destination Thailand is.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/12/an...h-results.html

Finally we are in the run up to the World Watch weekend and we hope that we will be joined by many people across the planet in order that we can see as many waders/shorebirds as possible between us in one weekend.
By participating you will be showing your solidarity with other birders around the world who care about what is happening to our wader populations and by doing so you can;

Saving farmland breeding waders.

Posted Monday 17th November 2014 at 22:18 by Rick and Elis
Mountain Plovers and Black-tailed Godwits don't seem at first glance to have much in common, but in one respect they do.

In the USA the Mountain Plover is traditionally a bird that breeds on the open short-grass Prairies. This habitat, like so many others has changed beyond recognition for the large part due to the expansion of agriculture swallowing up great swathes of it. The areas that are left have often been changed too with the irradication of Prairie Dog towns and the loss...
