CHICKS HATCHED

Bird Watching (UK) - - News -

In a UK first, 26 Black-tailed God­wit chicks have been hatched by con­ser­va­tion­ists in the Ouse Washes and Nene Washes, the species’ two main UK breed­ing grounds. The chicks were to be hand-reared un­til they are strong enough to be re­leased back into the wild. It’s the first time that ‘head­start­ing’ has been used to help a species in de­cline in the UK and it marks the start of an in­no­va­tive new part­ner­ship be­tween the RSPB and WWT – Pro­ject God­wit.
