A fundamental element of successful landscape scale wildlife conservation is developing an understanding of population trends over time. We collect, collate and maintain an up-to-date database of the numbers and breeding success of lapwing, redshank and avocet within the strategy area. Over time this helps us to make management decisions and prioritise actions across all of our sites.

We are regularly on the look out for volunteers whom can help us with this monitoring. If you are interested in collecting important data that will underpin the future success of the project and help us to increase the numbers of lapwing, redshank and avocet, please contact contact@suffolkwaders.org

The graph below shows the recent trends in our three priority species across our priority sites
