What we're looking for
Medmerry is a brand new nature reserve on the West Sussex coast, adjacent to the existing RSPB Pagham Harbour reserve. The wetlands of Medmerry will be developing fast over the coming months and years and are likely to be important breeding areas of lapwing, redshank and ringed plover. In the winter, they will be used by a wide variety of ducks and waders. We wish to monitor the breeding and wintering birds that use the site as the habitats change. The data will identify important areas of the site and inform future management.
