The sight of a curlew, Britain’s largest wader, striding across the mud flats is something rather special. They are a tall and elegant bird with a most beautiful call that echoes across the salt marsh. They spend the winter in estuaries and the summer nesting on moors and in riverside meadows.
But now they are in serious decline. The curlews’ “Near Threatened” status means they are considered to be threatened with extinction in the near future. So I am pleased to become an Ambassador for Curlew Action and support this charity’s work to save this iconic bird.
Curlew Action are dedicated to the preservation of the curlew. To find out what they are doing please visit their website.
