Garganey by Graham Catley
19 Feb 2018

As winter comes to an end and spring begins, many waterbirds will be leaving our shores to head back to their northern breeding grounds so numbers of many species will be much reduced on recent months. Some species like Black-tailed Godwits that winter on the continent and use the UK as a fuelling station may build in numbers, while the first Garganey, Little Ringed Plovers and Common Sandpipers may appear. Stay safe and enjoy your WeBS Count!
