The WWT is aiming to increase the Severn and Avon vales’ breeding curlew population to 50 pairs by 2025. The wetland habitat created will also benefit a range of other wildlife species.
The project will also provide a model for other local curlew conservation projects in lowland areas of southern Britain.
BASC and the WHCT will publish regular updates on the project as it progresses. To find our more about the WHCT and the work is supports click here.
