Pit Stops and Stopovers – BBC Radio 4
An interesting program about threats to migratory stopovers, featuring shorebirds in the Yellow Sea. The documentary relates how migrating birds need to rest, feed and refresh en route. Some journeys are thousands of miles and rich feeding habitat is disappearing for development. Wetlands, estuaries and coastlines are often the focus of industrial expansion, tourism and new housing, yet they are also the places most needed by migrating waders. Featuring the Chair of our Group as the international spokesperson for shorebirds, their habitats and their migrations.
