Little Curlew monitoring project in Northern Australia.

Posted Sunday 27th April 2014 at 19:48 by Rick and Elis
Our friend Chris Hassel who helped us so much when we visited Broome in Western Australia last year has sent us some information about a Little Curlew tracking project that they are doing over there.

When Elis and I visited the Little Curlews had not arrived which meant that it was one of the species we missed on our travels. I have seen one before, back in the good old days when they were called Little Whimbrel, a name which I prefer, when one turned up in Salthouse in Norfolk in...

Posted Wednesday 23rd April 2014 at 18:53 by Rick and Elis

This is an amazing time of year, full of hope and promise of things to come up here in the Northern Hemisphere; whether you are a citizen of the frozen north celebrating the long awaited retreat of the ice and snow, or live in the temperate zone enjoying the blossom and bright green leaves that brighten every hedgerow and woodland, or perhaps you dwell in the Mediterranean feeling the first warming days and promise of the summer heat to come, it is many people's favourite part of the year, a time...

One of the highlights of any wader enthusiast's year in the UK especially in the south is the passage of the Eurasian Dotterels. The most colourful of our breeding waders this bird is eagerly awaited every year. 'Trips' of these birds can be found on lowland farmland, especially open ploughed or recently sown areas, as well as some higher areas...
