In July I wrote a poem about waders for Wader Quest. This is an extract from their July 2015 Newsletter.

lots of different colours:
brown, grey, black
many species of waders.
for bugs in the muddy marshes.
The beetles are their favourite!
Beady black eyes,
to probe the mud for lunch!
their call is theirs
no sound bite to copy.
Humans drain the wet
lands to reclaim
land for themselves.
So your habitat is in danger, waders
