Little Ringed and Ringed Plovers.

This year these single species surveys are being undertaken to record their breeding presence and distribution (see September Archive). The sites requiring coverage within the region have now been chosen - after researching previous surveys, bird reports and suitable habitats. In all there are 10 core and 6 sample tetrads for Little Ringed, and 18 core and 3 sample for Ringed.

The map ā€“ crude but quick ā€“ shows those tetrads that require coverage. Anybody want to pick a penny? Iā€™m not sure what the survey details are as yet but it will require a couple of visits to ascertain if there is any evidence of breeding.

Before anyone asks the yellow blobs are some of the BBS squares in the region.
