In October 2022, we held a webinar on Curlews and Predators. The predation of Curlew eggs and chicks is one of the leading causes of the species’ decline. It is an emotive and complicated topic to discuss, but it is important these discussions are held so that we can get closer to the solution of such a nuanced problem.
As a result of the webinar two reports have been shared with us, which can be found in the links below.
The first is a report released by Leo Smith, Save our Curlews Campaign Co-ordinator at Shropshire Ornithological Society, titled SOS Save our Curlews Campaign Report 2022. The second report is a response from the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) to Leo's report, titled Curlew, released gamebird and foxes; Comment on SOS Save our Curlews Campaign Report 2022.
