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...

Habitat loss and waders; the intertidal zone.

Posted Wednesday 5th November 2014 at 21:01 by Rick and Elis
There is a great variety of waders species and families, and these birds have adapted to an equally impressive diversity of natural habitats to eke out a living for themselves. Sadly though, without exception every one of these habitats is under threat from the actions, whether direct or indirect, of the human race. http://www.waderquest.org/2014/11/ha...idal-zone.html

A phalaroping we will go!

Posted Thursday 30th October 2014 at 23:11 by Rick and Elis
Earlier this month to celebrate our wedding anniversary Elis and I decided that we should pay a long overdue visit to the RSPB reserves of Frampton Marsh and Freiston Shore in Lincolnshire. By coincidence a Grey Phalarope had been there all week, would it stay and be the icing on the cake?

We didn't however go straight to Lincolnshire, we got a bit side tracked and ended up in Norfolk at Burnham Norton, the attraction being a Steppe Grey Shrike, but that seen we were soon on our way...

Fantastic Bird Fair Weekend

Posted Tuesday 19th August 2014 at 00:00 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.
