2011 reviewed and riding the economic storm predicted for 201215/12/2011

We’re also tying up some of the loose ends from 2011. Did the spoon-billed sandpiper chicks make it to the UK?

Jane Markham is joined at RSPB headquarters by Andre Farrar, Sharon Thompson and Kathryn Smith to provide some answers.
