POSTPONED: Breeding Wetland Birds Survey Workshop, Woolston Eyes

Saturday 20th Mar 2021 08:00 - 13:00
Woolston Eyes, Thelwall Lane, Warrington, WA4 1NN
No tickets available


Woolston Eyes SSSI is a site of national importance for its breeding Black-necked Grebes, as well as supporting good numbers of breeding wildfowl including Gadwall, Pochard, Shelduck and Tufted Duck which have been monitored since the late 1970’s by the W.E. Conservation Group.

The aim of this workshop is to train volunteers to carry out monthly surveys (from April to July) of breeding wetland birds on sites within the Carbon Landscape. A number of these sites are undergoing habitat creation and restoration over the next five years through the Carbon Landscape Partnership. The volunteer surveys will allow us to assess the effectiveness of the works and increase the coverage at key wetlands to monitor the distribution and status of species of conservation concern.

This is a great opportunity to improve/refresh your wildfowl and other wetland birds ID skills, benefit from the many years’ survey experience of the Woolston Eyes Conservation Group’s volunteers and also access the best areas of the reserve which are normally restricted to permit holders only.
