Ayrshire farmland wader project
This project is part of the Wader Friendly Farming Initiative, set up to encourage the uptake of management techniques to help waders on farmland across Scotland.
- To help stem local declines in breeding waders such as lapwing and curlew, by encouraging and supporting local farmers to undertake management through the SRDP.
- To develop a partnership approach to landscape-scale conservation between conservation organisations and the agricultural community, building on successful local projects such as the Coalfields Environment Initiative.
- To raise awareness of the declines in farmland waders and management which would benefit them.
