I spent yesterday in the field, not far from my home. Similarly to last spring, I found some Curlews beside the road, and could make some sketches of them:



The male bird with broken bill has returned! It has a territory in a restricted area for at least 10 years now. It was with a female, and made some display flights:

You are getting better and better Szabi!
Your ability to combine precision in sketching and capturing this exceptional low light has no equal!

Hi Szabi! Great news you still have some breeding curlews. We still have plenty in Bowland but their future looks bleak in the UK as a whole. I can still hear them flying over the cottage on migration while I lie in bed in the morning as well as from inside the office at work. Fantastic birds - I can never see enough of them. Nice work, take care, Mike
