Another bonus episode, to mark Plover Appreciation Day and raise awareness of the particular challenges that are facing a varied group of wading birds, that go by names such as dotterel, lapwing and plover, but grouped together as Plovers.

Sonia Sanchez from Birdlife Australia, Rick Simpson from Wader Quest and Andrea Gress from Birds Canada join me to talk about their respective Plover projects.
