Several studies have documented population declines in species of waterbird that winter on The Wash SPA and are protected as non-breeding features. With a few exceptions, the reasons for these declines are not clear cut.This project brought together findings from a wide range of studies to the identify drivers of population change on The Wash, where possible, for 15 species, and to make recommendations about measures that could be taken to halt or reverse these trends.
