Last year to celebrate the visit to the local study area of Mary Colwell Hector, Curlew ‘ambassador’, a range of arts activities were initiated. Writing and sculpture workshops were held and a curlew choir was formed. Not only was awareness raised about the plight of the curlew among audiences old and new, but funds were raised by those inspired to help the project as well.

Curlew Fact

Some observers believe curlew to be gregarious when not defending their territories, visiting other curlew when eggs are laid or hatched.
