The Upper Onny Wildlife Group have launched a Lapwing Recovery Project aimed at reversing the decline in breeding Lapwing on Shropshire farmland. This project resulted in a 20 acre field at Lodge Farm being specifically managed for Lapwing in 2007. As a direct consequence of the management work 3 pairs of Lapwing nested successfully at the farm and at least 2 pairs fledged young. A further 33 adult and juvenile Lapwing used the farm as feeding habitat.
A case study document has been produced to provide information to landowners interested in becoming involved in reversing the decline of breeding Lapwing in Shropshire. The Lodge Farm Case Study provides information on funding opportunities for this kind of work as well as outlining the habitat management which was carried out at Lodge Farm.
