Project 19: Island Habitat Restoration

Project Partner: RSPB

This breeding wader project will improve habitats for breeding curlew in particular as well as lapwing, redshank and snipe. In the LELP area curlew have declined by 82% and in the same period, lapwing have fallen by 89%, and snipe by 78% whilst the numbers were too few to determine the rate of decline in redshank.

However, it has been shown that habitat management activity to date on the RSPB reserves on Lough Erne islands has been effective in reversing this decline. This project aims to build on that success to secure a stable and growing population of all four species.
