Ewan joined the team in 2015. In 2015 and 2016 he was part of the wader ringing team working with Nanjing Normal University catching spoon-billed sandpipers and other waders on the Jiangsu coast in China. Ewan works as an ecologist in Scotland on Golden Eagles and carried out his PhD on their juvenile dispersal behaviour. He has been a licensed bird ringer in the UK for 17 years, with interests predominantly in waders and terns.
The spoon-billed sandpiper conservation breeding programme is a collaboration between WWT, Birds Russia, Moscow Zoo and the RSPB working with colleagues from the BTO, BirdLife International, ArcCona and the Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force.
