Pintail by Jill Pakenham
30 Jul 2014

The UK’s winter populations of Ringed Plover and Pintail are falling, but Avocet and Gadwall are on the up. Waterbirds in the UK 2012/13, the new report of the Wetland Bird Survey (WeBS) details the status of these and other waterbirds through an interactive online report.  Along with a paper report summarising results and related research, Waterbirds in the UK 2012/13 has all the information you need about wintering waders, ducks, geese, swans and gulls in the UK, as well as the wetlands used by them.  A big thank you to our dedicated WeBS volunteers, all of whom make this key resource possible.
