This year the International Wader Study Group is organising the European Golden Plover Survey for the 4th time targeting to get a better understanding of the population trends. This is a short notice call, but some of us might be able to help this project. The counts should be carried out this coming weekend or the next one.
If you know European Golden Plover wintering sites near you, please plan a visit on 10-11 October alternatively on 17-18 October 2020 and count them for the project. Organisers are also asking to share the numbers of Northern Lapwings andEurasian Curlews as well.

You can share the checklists with worldshorebirdsday as usual. I will forward all observations to the project leaders. Please add habitat description in the comment field.
