We are excited that Curlew Cam is back (with a warning to those who find it distractingly addictive). Lots of thought and effort has gone into government guidelines for work and social distancing in achieving this, but with the help of dedicated farming partners Wynford, Joyce, and Trish we have succeeded. Our spirits are raised, and we hope yours will be too.
This breeding Curlew territory in Wales has history. It was the feature of a beautiful short documentary film by Billy Clapham called Keeper of the Call. Billy wanted to make a film about Curlews as his final piece and contacted Curlew Ambassador Mary Colwell Hector who kindly put him in touch with us. The film featured on Springwatch last year and was nominated for several awards at film festivals internationally. You can click here to watch the film.
