Waveney Waders Project
The Waveney Valley and South Norfolk as a whole already supports wonderful, though under recorded wildlife.
The Otter trust believes that the region could support more wildlife. We hope that the Waveney Waders project will help. The Otter trust is conducting a pilot study based at our Dickleburgh Moor site utilising a thermal scope to locate and place colour identification rings on lapwing chicks which will enable us to assess nesting success, site fidelity and breeding requirements for lapwing and other farmland waders. We will then work with our landowner partners to achieve the following aims:
At the Otter Trust we help protect species from extinction, maintaining and restoring habitats through management. These are our current projects.
