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, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Poland came together to exchange views and experiences. We will be sharing a full report and next steps soon.


Webinar series

Our webinar series, Conservation: lessons from the Curlew, is working to address some of the complex issues involved in Curlew conservation including: forestry, predators, farming and upland management.

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.

Please download one (or both!) of these signs, share them on social media and put them up on billboards near you to protect your local ground nesting birds. Now available in Welsh.

If you would like A4, laminated copies of these signs please email Ellen, all you need to do is donate for postage.
