Half right!

The latest locations for the two satellite-tagged Curlews suggest one might be a local breeder, as hoped, but the other is definitely heading north! But how far north will it go? Northern England, Scotland, Finland? Watch this space!

On Monday, Amanda Perkins, David Tompkins (our new field assistant) and I had a quick tour around our Shropshire study area. It was very pleasing to see a load of birds back on their breeding sites and even better to find two more colour-ringed adults on territory.


  1. One pair back at Elan Tony, So far !

    1. Hopefully a few more to come yet. Was in Elan today doing some renovation work, just in case!

  2. I know, you never know Tony, maybe one day, fingers crossed! This year could be that year!
