Report a curlew sighting

During the breeding season when Curlew have returned inland to breed, the more detailed and accurate sighting information we have of curlew activities, the better we are able to find curlew nests and monitor their breeding activities. Curlew sightings can be simply recorded online via our iRecord form:

This year we are working with a range of age-groups to celebrate our curlew population and collecting reminiscences in case we face the unthinkable and lose breeding waders from the local landscape altogether.
