From Leo Smith -
The Stiperstones and Corndon Landscape Partnership Scheme (LPS) includes a Ground-nesting Bird Recovery Project, which will promote the monitoring and conservation of Curlew, Lapwing and Snipe, and celebrate their contribution to the local landscape. The LPS covers part of Montgomeryshire near Churchstoke.
To start with, we need to know where these birds breed. The Community Wildlife Group will survey the area and locate breeding territories, to help with this monitoring and conservation. Lapwing and Curlew are easy to recognise. Participants will each take on a survey square, and walk round it four times during the breeding season: the beginning of April, beginning of May, mid June and mid July. A map will be provided, and all observations will be recorded on the map. Simple survey instructions will be provided. Training will be provided for anyone that wants it.
Anyone can help who lives or works in the area, or has an interest in its wildlife, and who wants to actively contribute to local knowledge and conservation. Membership is free.
