An introduction to the Clyde Valley Wader Initiative

Posted in


In this video we hear more about the Clyde Valley Wader Initiative from the RSPB’s Senior Conservation Officer, Daniel Brown.

Globally, the number of waders is declining however, Britain retains a high number of the population with around 800 wader territories being recorded within the Clyde Valley Wader Initiative project area. This video is one of a 3-part video series showcasing the monitoring and management practices currently being undertaken by a group of 16 farmers in the Duneaton Valley to improve and enhance the habitat for farmland waders.
