Curlew Update

Back in April, on the 22nd, as a result of Jonny’s hard work and diligence (and with a little help from my wader nets) we staked out one of the fields at Blakehill Farm and managed to capture the first adult Curlew in Wiltshire for nigh on 40 years.

Jonny got notification yesterday that, thanks to the leg tag fitted when it was ringed, it was sighted in Cornwall on the 27th December. It had travelled 272km from where it was ringed:

It was seen on the beach at Portscatho.
