Day 14


It is being discovered that much of the research in relation to curlew that is relied upon to inform management is now out of date. This year the Curlew Country project has purchased some GPS tags to fit to adult curlew with the aim of discovering more about their territories and local and pre-migratory feeding roosts. Curlew depend on a range of habitat over the migratory and breeding period, more needs to be known about the habitat that they use and their movement patterns in order to help support their needs.
