Earlier this year we asked pin badge enthusiasts which two species, from a list of four (Red Knot, Common Snipe, Terek Sandpiper and Collared Pratincole), they would most like to see in the Wader Quest collection. Adding together all the votes from facebook, emails, instagram and twitter etc., the following two species were clear favourites;
No 24 Terek Sandpiper and No 27 Collared Pratincole.
We also decided on two more species to be kept under wraps until now, they are;
No 25 Banded Stilt and No 26 Sociable Lapwing.
The new pins will be on sale at £3 each. (All previous badges – Nos 0 – 23, will continue to be available at £2 each while stocks last.) For full range of species see our pin Badge shop page
We also realised that our Friends of Wader Quest (FOWQ) have nothing that sets them apart from other wader lovers, so we devised the FOWQ pin badge (No 28), which can only be purchased(£2.50; sorry we can’t afford to give them away, the money is required for wader conservation) by bone fide, paid-up FOWQ subscribers who have paid their 2021 subs (maximum purchase of one per individual membership, two for family membership).
If you are not a subscriber to FOWQ but are keen to get your hands on one of these exclusive badges, you can sign up for 2021 for just £10.00 to be eligible to purchase the exclusive and limited FOWQ pin badge.
