Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

Hav­ing re­turned to breed cour­tesy of East Anglian coastal de­fences of World War II, Av­o­cets have spread from their orig­i­nal Suf­folk strong­hold. By the launch of Bird Watch­ing in 1986, they were al­ready well es­tab­lished and a decade later there were more than 650 UK breed­ing pairs. Some 20 years on and the num­bers have more than dou­bled with 1,500 breed­ing pairs, from York­shire to the south coast, and more than 7,500 now win­ter­ing in the coun­try.
