Lapwing breed­ing suc­cess

Bird Watching (UK) - - News Wire -

Lap­wings at WWT’S Wash­ing­ton Wet­land Cen­tre have had one of their best breed­ing sea­sons since the cen­tre opened, thanks to cash from the Peo­ple’s Post­code Lot­tery. Money from it has paid for an en­hance­ment project at the re­serve, which in­cluded fit­ting a coir mat­ting fil­tra­tion sys­tem, and re­in­force­ment to pond edges, among other im­prove­ments which have re­duced ero­sion and re­stored vi­tal habi­tats. And the Lap­wings were not the only ben­e­fi­cia­ries; the in­creased feed­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ated by the project have also aided the cen­tre’s Avo­cet and Red­shank pop­u­la­tions.
