Sunset Series: *BONUS EVENT*: Saving the South Cumbrian Curlews

Curlews are in trouble. Without action, we may lose these charismatic birds from our landscapes forever...

This talk is all about curlews in South Cumbria, and the local action that is happening now to ensure the remaining nesting birds have a successful season.

Curlews are facing catastrophic declines worldwide - every nest is crucial for the survival of the species.

Right now, it’s breeding time in South Cumbria and the clock is ticking – we need to find their hideaway nests so we’re able to protect the precious breeding pairs and give them the best possible chance of successfully raising their young. Our dedicated volunteers are working closely with local landowners and liaising with curlew experts monitoring the known pairs in the area.

The good news is that we’ve detected more compared to last year but success is never guaranteed and our vulnerable curlews continue to run the risk of extinction through accidental destruction or attack from other animals.

Come along to find out more about these magnificent birds and why saving every nest will help secure their future.
