  • Grassland-breeding shorebirds show widespread declines due to a reduction in breeding productivity following agricultural intensification. [...] Key Method We studied mortality by radio-tagging 662 chicks of Black-tailed Godwit Limosa limosa and Northern Lapwing Vanellus vanellus in 15 farmland sites in the Netherlands. Tagging and handling had no effect on the condition and survival of godwit chicks, but body condition was reduced by 6–11% in lapwing chicks wearing a tag for longer than 3 days. Fledging…Expand Abstract
