The European breeding population of Redshank, Tringa totanus, has declined markedly in recent years as a result of the loss of wetland breeding sites. An estimated 32,000-40,000 pairs breed in Great Britain, and with c. 50% of these found on coastal saltmarshes the habitat is nationally and internationally important for the species.
