Posted in

Doug Telfer has farmed at Glendouran Farm for all of his life. He’s one of the farmers involved the Clyde Valley Wader Initiative. In this video he shares his experiences of working as part of the group and the wider benefits he has experienced.

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 is the third and final video in the series that showcases 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.
