Nollaig Feeney our Heritage Officer has been in touch to remind us that Wednesday 21st of April is World Curlew Day on and the lovely curlew sculpture has been put back up on Walsh’s roundabout in Roscommon town to promote it.
As part of the National Curlew Conservation Programme https://www.npws.ie/farmers-and-landowners/schemes/curlew-conservation-programme there are two Curlew Action teams operating in Roscommon covering North Roscommon & Lough Ree.
Co. Roscommon ecologist James Owens is one of a team surveying the east Mayo-North Roscommon area which roughly covers between Castlerea, Ballyhaunis and Ballaghaderreen. He has been in touch about their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Curlew-Conservation-Programme-East-Mayo-North-Roscommon-101634802030252/?ti=as
Please keep an eye on their page for Curlew news in North Roscommon.
If you see or hear any curlews, please message their Facebook page or phone 089 228 0381
