The Curlew is an iconic species of our uplands and coastal estuaries. Its familiar ‘curloo-curloo’ call has inspired music, poetry and literature for hundreds of years.

Unfortunately, the Curlew has declined dramatically since the mid-1990s and is in urgent need of conservation. As the UK is the third most important country in the world for the breeding population we have a global responsibility to take action.

In this talk we will learn about the Curlew and the Programme, which aims to better understand the land management practices required to reverse Curlew population declines and to adopt a no regrets approach to Curlew recovery across the RSPB.

Sarah is the Curlew Recovery Programme Manager for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, based from their Newcastle office.
