Celebrate these wonderful birds.

Curlews are amazing birds. 
They are not just lovely to look at, they are pleasant to listen to as well.

But remember, there is a serious side to this celebration, two species of Curlew are almost certainly already extinct and have become so in my lifetime. 
Let's not have any more go the same way.
