The Curlew has become a rare sight in Ireland. Birdwatch Ireland calls for our help. They believe only a few hundred pairs are left in the country. It was my first time to see them. I was fortunate to have a few of them visiting for a little week. This one bathing just outside my window an early morning.
At night I heard their haunting cry. Definitely memorable.
They’ve left now, hopefully they’ve found a safe place for spring.
