International Wader Study Group meeting, 20-23 September, Morecambe UK


Recommended Posts

We are pleased to invite you to our annual meeting in Morecambe, United Kingdom from 20-23 September 2019. Morecambe is an easy journey from Manchester Airport, with international links to North America and beyond. The conference will include the usual mix of fascinating talks from far and wide, as well as a fast and furious ‘describe my poster’ session and, of course, the AGM.  There will be a variety of local excursions on the Friday and a workshop on managing predator impacts for the conservation of breeding waders on the Monday.

Entertainment will include a traditional Ceilidh with a caller to help those to whom this is  a mystery, so bring your dancing shoes. We are also planning a fun quiz. We will also be holding a silent auction again to fund the small projects grants, so please consider donating lots of bird-related or local items to support this great cause. 

The conference will be held in the Platform - a restored Edwardian Railway Station on the promenade - in the seaside town of Morecambe. The town is situated on the edge of the English Lake District, and lends it's name to the famous Morecambe Bay, an internationally designated Special Area of Conservation holding over 20,000 red knot and a similar number of dunlin, as well as many other waterbirds.

For more information and registration, please see the conference web page. Bookings and talk/poster abstract submissions are open now.
