Curlew arrive back at their breeding grounds in late March or early April. They breed on upland and lowland bogs, wet grassland and unimproved/semi-improved pasture. Curlew numbers have declined drastically from 5000 nesting pairs in the late 1980s to approximately  130 pairs today.  A decline of 97% in just 20 years.  This is due to habitat loss and predation. They are critically endangered.
