Winter Farmland Bird Survey Workshop, Carrington Moss 27/10

Wednesday 27th Oct 2021 08:00 - 13:00
Carrington Moss (meet on Isherwood Road)
5 of 12 tickets available


The mosslands and farmland of the Great Manchester Wetlands NIA remain an important area for Red and Amber-listed farmland birds. By enlisting the help of volunteer recorders, the Citizen Science Project aims to monitor the abundance and distribution of priority species including Lapwing, Linnet, Reed Bunting, Skylark, Tree Sparrow and Yellowhammer, and to investigate how they make use of different agricultural habitats and crop types during the winter. Poor over winter survival has been identified as one of the main factors in the decline of farmland birds.

This workshop will help you to improve your farmland bird ID skills by focusing on both visual identification and calls, and also prepare you to carry out winter surveys in a 1-km square of your choice within the Great Manchester Wetlands NIA. This survey is the most comprehensive of its type ever undertaken in our area, and your contribution will help us to collect valuable data, which will support the conservation of farmland birds in one of their remaining NW strongholds.
