Day 16

 

In the more northern areas of the UK other Curlew Recovery Projects have started up. In the Curlew Country study area of Shropshire and the Welsh Marches, there is a mixture of upland and lowland habitat and the species linked to it.   Outside upland projects, mainly centred on reserves and managed moorland, there is not so much work being done on what may be considered to be ‘lowland’ or ‘southern’ curlew often nesting on farmland. Over the past year our project has been visited by the British Trust for Ornithology, other Southern Curlew project members, the RSPB and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust as well as enthusiastic volunteers hoping to start curlew projects in non-moorland and upland areas.
