A couple of days ago it was World Curlew Day, which was celebrated around the world by those concerned about the problems curlews of all kinds are facing, and those that simply love them for the wonderful creatures they are.


As part of those celebrations David Oakes of Trees A Crowd produced an fascinating podcast with the full title ‘CURL-EW-PHORIA! Why the duck is everyone wacky about this wonderful wader?’

To produce the podcast David contacted various people from the world of wader conservation who contributed their voices and thoughts to the celebration. One of those was one of our founders Rick Simpson.

It is a very interesting production and well worth listening to, and an excellent vehicle for promoting curlew conservation everywhere.
