Day 17

 

We are collaborating with the British Trust for Ornithology to produce a film on curlew observation, to help those keen to undertake curlew monitoring in the future. Local wildlife photographer Ben Osborne has been filming curlews throughout their breeding season, both in the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Marches and also on a managed grouse moor in Wensleydale.
