Time budgets and foraging of breeding golden plover Pluvialis apricaria
Author(s): M.J. Whittingham, S.M. Percival and A.F. Brown
Abstract: 1. The golden plover Pluvialis apricaria is of high conservation concern in Europe.
Previous studies have concentrated on how birds utilize moorland. We used radio-
telemetry to study their habitat selection and behaviour, during both night and

Habitat selection by golden plover Pluvialis apricaria chicks
Author(s): Mark Jonathan Whittingham, Stephen Mark Percival, Andren Francis Brown
Abstract: Despite the listing of golden plover Pluvialis apricaria on Annex 1 of the European Directive on the
Conservation of Wild Birds there is virtually no information on the habitat requirements or diet of
their chicks. We used radio telemetry to invest..[more]..

Nest-site selection by golden plover: why do shorebirds avoid
nesting on slopes?

Author(s): Mark J. Whittingham, Stephen M. Percival and Andrew F. Brown
Abstract: It is widely known that many upland-breeding shorebirds tend to nest on plateaus
but to date no studies have put forward explanations for this phenomenon. We
examined the effect of slope and habitat on the distribution of ground-nesting golden

Warmer springs advance the breeding phenology of golden
plovers Pluvialis apricariaand their prey (Tipulid )

Author(s): J. W. Pearce-Higgins D. W. Yalden
M. J. Whittingham
Abstract: Most studies of climate-driven changes in avian breeding phenology have focused on temperate passerines, yet the consequences of such environmental change may be more deleterious for other avian taxa, such as arctic and sub-arctic waders (Charadrii)…[more]..

Habitat Use and Resource Overlap by Breeding Golden Plovers
and Dotterels (Pluvialis apricaria, Charadrius morinellus)`

Author(s): Ingvar Byrkjedal
Abstract: This study describes their habitat use and resource overlap in an area of co-occur-
rence in southern Norway, and analyzes their population densities, and aggression in
relation to predictions from the competitive exclusion principle…[more]..

Comparative diurnal and nocturnal diet and foraging in Eurasian Golden Plovers Pluvialis apricaria and Northern Lapwings Vanellus vanellus wintering on arable farmland.
Author(s): Gillings S. & Sutherland W.J.
Abstract: Knowledge of diet and intake rates is a useful first step in understanding the distribution and behaviour of foragers. The diet of Golden Plovers and Lapwings feeding on arable farmland has been rarely studied. Yet these species increasingly occupy t..[more]..

Testing the effects of recreational disturbance on two upland breeding waders
Abstract: Previous work has shown that Golden Plovers Pluvialis apricaria guarding chicks utilize heavily disturbed habitat at a lower rate than surrounding areas, but that such rates of avoidance are reduced when the movement of people is restricted to a surf..[more]..
