What we're looking for
The South West Peak Landscape Partnership Scheme has received funding from HLF to deliver a significant programme of works from 2017 to 2021 (http://www.southwestpeak.co.uk/). This includes the Working for Waders project, run by a partnership of the RSPB, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, Natural England and the Peak District National Park. The South West Peak is a very important area for breeding lapwing, snipe and curlew. We are looking to establish a team of local Wader Wardens to help monitor these birds on priority farms, help to monitor the impact of habitat creation and improvements and to provide information to support a University of Sheffield PhD research programme. This will directly support breeding wader conservation.
