Where have the peesies gone? Managing farmland for wading birds (Banchory) – CANCELLED


+++This event is now cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.+++

Wading birds such as Lapwings and Curlews have disappeared from large parts of Scotland in recent years.

The sight and sound of them in spring-time has been a familiar and much-loved part of the farmed environment for generations and many farmers and land managers are working hard to try to conserve them.  Join us on the Finzean Estate in Aberdeenshire to discuss the factors that have contributed to their decline and the measures that can be taken to reverse it.

Grazing management, wader scrapes, predation, cropping, soil health, weather and the future of agri-environment support are among the topics that will be covered.

This event will include an outdoor visit, so please bring appropriate clothing and footwear.   Since lunch will be provided you are asked to use the booking form below to secure your place.


Bookings are no longer available for this event.
