Wintering Golden Plovers and Lapwings

Wintering Golden Plovers and Lapwings

In winter Britain is host to 250,000 Golden Plovers and probably 1.5 million Lapwings but we need to know so much more about them.
Unlike most wader species, most of these birds can be found on farmland during the winter months. Historically both species have preferred to feed on pastures. However, since the 1970s, changes in farm management have meant that many pastures have been ploughed and converted to arable farmland. The remaining pastures have also been subjected to ‘improvements’ such as reseeding, drainage and fertiliser addition. All these changes have decreased the quantity of food available to plovers feeding on pastures in winter. At the same time we've seen dramatic changes in the abundance and distribution of plovers.
