Wader Quest

Wader Quest

Waders have a special place in the hearts of most birdwatchers - they are varied and often don't move fast! Rick and Elis Simpson want to spread knowledge about them and improve their conservation.

Wader Quest is a charity set up 7 years ago to prevent the five critically endangered species of wader joining the seven already extinct - Rick & Elis were the founders.
