WCWW4 final results and Roll of Honour

It seems like ages ago that we were sitting in trepidation waiting for emails to come in, and start to keep track of all the contributions as they arrived. At first it was slow, then the floodgates opened and it was time consuming to say the least to try to make sure every person and every bird in every location was recorded so none would be missed out. Let us know if we missed anything or anyone in the lists below. We have been somewhat overwhelmed by the amount of work this project has brought us and as a result the e-newsletter will not be finished until later this week. 

But here are the totals for this year .

2017 WCWW4
results (updated 21/11/2017)

Together we have seen 130 species

There have been 322 observers

In 35 countries

On 6 continents 

In all 9 flyways

(and one location outside any flyway)

Many thanks to everyone who took the time and trouble

 to take part and to show that they are aware of the 

crisis facing waders/shorebirds across the planet.

Well done!

The prize draw will take place later this week once we have checked again that everyone is included.

And here is a list of the species seen and the Roll of Honour.
