The Wash Wader Research Group has been ringing waders (shorebirds) around the shores of the Wash since 1959. The Group operates with cannon nets and mist nets in both Norfolk and Lincolnshire, with the main aim of providing a better understanding of the waders (shorebirds) using the Wash. For more information about WWRG, see the About WWRG pages. For more information about our scientific aims and the species we study, see the What we do and Species pages. For more information about the area in which we study, see The Wash pages.

Anyone with an interest in our work is welcome to join our fieldwork team. We usually have a good mix of experienced and less experienced participants and the aim is to get everyone fully involved with all aspects of our work. To find out more about our fieldwork trips, or if you are interested in joining us or in any aspects of the Groups work, see our Fieldwork pages and the Blog.
