Curlew conservation projects. Curlews are beautiful birds of the moorlands and coast, with a burbling call. There number has been in decline for many years due to habitat loss but this is beginning to turn through the effort of conservation projects such as that of the RSPB in the Antrim Hills. From no successful breeding pairs in 2005, last year saw 37 curlew pair produce 69 fledglings.
