Curlew Country

The Shropshire Hills & Welsh Marches Curlew Recovery Project

Many believe curlew to be the Herald of spring.  If urgent action is not taken soon, their distinctive call will no longer be heard. Within the Scheme area the curlew population has diminished by 30% in 11 years. This reflects the national and international picture.  While our local Curlew population is small it is significant in comparison to tiny populations elsewhere.
