This national survey is ongoing.

A repeat of this survey, last performed in 2002, will be carried out this year by BTO/RSPB. The purpose is to assess the importance of both existing and new wet grassland and other breeding wader habitats in England. Volunteers will be required to visit allocated sites on three occasions between mid April and end of June. Visits should be at least a week apart and be made between dawn and midday - avoiding cold, wet or windy weather.

A map will be provided showing the boundary of your site.

Further information on the Herts sites that require coverage, and details of how to volunteer/site allocation, will be available soon.
