WOS Newsflash

Curlew are the biggest conservation issue we have in the UK. They are listed as ‘near threatened’ on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of species. We have around a third of the World population of this species in the UK and are still lucky enough to have around ten pairs in Wiltshire. One of the main issues curlew face is their nests and chicks being destroyed by grass cutting. Neil Pullen the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust’s Reserve Manager is organising a meeting at their Lower Moor Reserve on Wednesday 1st March at 7pm to discuss the issue and he is looking for volunteers to help find curlew and their nests. Discussions can then be had with the landowner to protect the nesting attempts. If you are interested in help the curlews of Wiltshire please come along to this meeting.
