Roadford WeBS counter needed

Posted July 24th, 2017 at 9:58 pm in People

As part of the Wetland Bird Survey (WeBS) a small team of birders have been counting waterfowl at Roadford Reservoir since it flooded in 1989. We now need to recruit another counter to help with the counts as soon as possible.

The Wetland Bird Survey is a nationwide survey of waterfowl on coastal and inland sites carried out to monitor populations of waders and wildfowl. The counts are monthly and at Roadford usually take around 2 hours, starting around 8.30 am. We take it in turn to count different parts of the reservoir. Roadford is the most important inland site in Devon.
