This Eurasian Curlew is no.34. It is one of several that were saved and raised by WWT Slimbridge and released into the Wild.
The Eggs were found near Military Runways and would normally have to be destroyed under an individual licence to protect flight safety. Because these birds have declined so much a conservation project was put in place to save them and to help rejuvenate the population.

Very interesting, Paul. In Ireland, it is predicted that the Curlew will be extinct as a breeding population within 10 years, if action is not taken to save them, right away. I'm still seeing curlews here in the US, but not in the numbers that I did back in the mid to late 1900's. I certainly hope that efforts to save them are successful.
Nice capture, by the way.
