Day 12


Once chicks have hatched they are fitted with rings and tiny radio tags to help us to understand better what chicks require until they fledge.   This year, following the devastating chick losses of the previous years, the Curlew Country project has applied for a licence to incubate eggs returning them to the nest as chicks. The licence from Natural England has just been received and we will try and boost chick numbers using this method.

Curlew Fact

Newly fledged chicks will spend at least a year at their wintering grounds before returning to breed.
