Title of the project
Green Shoots North Wales SSSI work
The project seeks to increase populations of wading birds including curlews (Numenius spp.) and lapwings (Vanellus vanellus) by controlling populations of generalist predators including foxes (Vulpes vulpes)
Data was gathered on predator control to assess to what extent predation was limiting the recruitment rate of these species.
The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) ran the project and hunters were asked to submit their data on predator control for the survey.
