Seen a Curlew - inland?

If you've seen a Curlew inland anywhere in Kerry, we'd love to hear of it.

Curlew, Castlegregory (Michael O'Clery).

Breeding Curlews are down to probably less than 200 pairs in Ireland, and this years' national Curlew Survey is undertaking to find as many nesting pairs as possible. They still nest in Kerry, though there might be fewer than 20 pairs now and most, or all, are nesting on marginal, 'unimproved' grasslands, or raised bog, in hilly areas inland. If you see or hear a Curlew inland, anywhere in Kerry in May, June or July, please let us know. Coastal birds are either on passage or are non-breeding birds, but it is the inland, breeding birds we are trying to survey. Please contact Michael HERE if you come across any. Many thanks.

You can read more about the BirdWatch Ireland 2015 Curlew Survey on their website HERE.
