The Common Redshank Tringa totanus breeding population on British saltmarshes has reduced by > 50% since 1985, with declines linked to changes in grazing management. Conservation initiatives have encouraged low-intensity grazing of < 1 cattle ha-1 but Redshank have continued to decline. This study investigated effects of grazing intensity on Redshank nest survival, and how conservation management can reduce nest mortality. This was studied by: (a) recording nest survival though monitoring… Expand
