Day 9


Curlews return to local nesting territories from February onwards. Nests are usually started in April, but we are learning that a number of factors contribute to nesting time, including grass length of potential nest sites, access to good feeding sites enabling the birds to get into condition and the effect the weather has on these other factors.
