Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens

Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens

The Dee Estuary is one of the North West's last surviving wildernesses. Every winter it is visited by thousands of wading birds. At times of high water, birds are forced to feed and rest on the limited beach margins including the shore at West Kirby in Wirral.

The Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens scheme was set up by Wirral Borough Council at the request of English Nature fifteen years ago to protect the birds at these times and to monitor their movements. The data collected by the Wardens are being computerised at Liverpool Museum and contribute to Liverpool Bay Wader Study Group research.

Two to five Wardens are scheduled to be on the beach for about three hours each time the height of the tide is above 8.6 metres at high water during daylight hours between September and March.

WE NEED MORE WARDENS, CAN YOU HELP? You don't need to be an expert and there is some great birdwatching to be had in the company of some experienced birders only too pleased to pass their expertise on.
