When is this event?
Join our webinar to get stuck in the world of the Eurasian Curlew and learn more about the Curlew LIFE project at RSPB Insh Marshes with our Curlew LIFE project officer Thijs Claes.
We will start the webinar by exploring what a Curlew actually is, what they eat and how they behave throughout the year. We will answers many questions such as; Why does it make all these evocative calls? How are Curlew doing in our landscapes?
You will get an insight into the work behind protecting the Curlew population on Insh Marshes and find out about opportunities to support our work.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions which we will try to answer near the end of the webinar.
The project wants to establish RSPB Insh Marshes as a recognised site for curlew conservation excellence. Our target is to determine the curlew productivity and increase or sustain it to at least 0.5 chicks per pair per year. We will achieve this by supporting the reserve team to optimise habitat management, performing an thorough monitoring scheme of curlew habitat, predators, behaviour and, most importantly, nest and chick survival. Engaging the local community in this work is a key target of the project.
