Fieldwork starts in March every year and extends until the end of July. We are looking for people who would be prepared to undertake the fieldwork needed to establish that Curlews have returned, where they have chosen to nest and whether they have bred successfully.

This work is time-consuming and observers need to be patient and willing to devote several hours at a time in order to achieve results. There is scope for work and sites to be shared between two or more people.

Experience of curlews would be useful but not essential (tuition will be given) but you will need a good pair of binoculars and (preferably) a telescope.
