From the 9-11th February 2024, Curlew Action hosted the largest ever conference for Curlew fieldworkers. Over 100 practical Curlew conservationists from across the UK, Ireland, France, Finland, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Poland came together to exchange views and experiences. We will be sharing a full report and next steps soon.

Ground nesting birds

From March-July we need to be extra careful to protect nests. Curlews nest on the ground and so are particularly vulnerable to disturbance from walkers, cyclists and inquisitive pooches.

Let's work together to make sure curlews have a successful nesting season by keeping to paths and having dogs on leads in nesting areas.

Our two signs are available to download for free in English or Welsh. Additionally, laminated and plastic corrugated signs can be ordered from us.

Fieldworker Toolkit

Curlew Action has collaborated with the Curlew Recovery Partnership, BTO and WWT to bring you an online toolkit containing loads of essential tips and techniques for working with Curlews.
