Creation of Wetland Habitat

  • Protecting wetland habitat. Photo credit: Natural England

The Severn Estuary and Lower Severn Vale Levels provide an extremely important habitat for birds.

Through wildfowl and wader monitoring we built a greater understanding of:

  • the way wading birds and waterfowl are using the estuary
  • the threats to wading birds and waterfowl
  • the importance of high tide roosts and problems caused by disturbances to these habitats

A Forgotten Landscape looked at the potential for wetland scrapes to be used as high tide roosts to encourage waterfowl and as part of this we produced:

  • A high tide roost map
  • leaflet about the impact of accidental disturbance of roost sites
  • A wetland scrape at Littleton Brick Pits
