What we're looking for
Curlews are a globally threatened species, but still breed in the Upper Thames River Valleys in significant numbers each year. Their numbers on traditional sites are monitored separately, but we have very little information on their breeding success and behaviour over the spring and summer. We need skilled birdwatchers to help us identify where curlews are breeding, by taking detailed field observations on a weekly basis. Licensed staff then follow up to complete work at the nest itself.
