Wader Quest organises or participates in a number of events all around the UK, aimed at raising awareness of the plight of and conservation of our waders. Please take part in these and if you see us, come and say hello. We will also publish relevant events, that we don’t attend, in this section for your information.

Currently events are being cancelled around the world due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the resulting restrictions on movement and gatherings.

2020 has seen the cancellation of the Pensthorpe Bird and Wildlife Fair and Falsterbo Bird Show.

However some events have not been cancelled at the moment and they are listed below.
