Hot off the presses! The banding books were printed today. They’re ready to be filled with data on lots of GLPIPL this summer.

These books are where we, specifically the banding crew, record all of the information we collect about the birds on the beach during the breeding season. Since each bird gets a unique color band (leg bracelet) combination, properly recording this information is vital for keeping good records.

We’re one step closer to the field season and working with the GLPIPL again!

  1. Very smart indeed! Though less significant than the breeding grounds, maybe some of the winter PIPL hangouts could do with simple booklets to record dates, location, numbers & and where possible tag / band details…

      Also, we believe the wintering grounds are just as important. This is where the plovers spend the majority of their year. There needs to be just as much work to conserve these areas as there is on the breeding grounds. It will take everyone and everywhere to help the GLPIPL continuing to grow and succeed. We greatly appreciate your help and support!
