Day 15

 

As part of the project we are working with a farm business manager to assess the cost to a farm business of supporting breeding curlew. We will feed back the results of our findings to policy makers to try and ensure that outcomes based agri-environment schemes will enable curlew populations to revive and thrive in the future. The Curlew Country project has been mentioned as a model of good practice in an All Party Parliamentary Group and at a European Directives meeting.

Curlew Fact

The collective noun for curlew is a herd, but they may also be referred to as a curfew or skein.
