From captivity to freedom, and hopefully a long life in the lowlands of England. These young are boosting the population in Gloucestershire while we sort out how to make our landscapes better for all wildlife. "Hope is a thing with feathers..."

A unique partnership is stepping up to help the curlew in the English lowlands, all part of the effort to save this species, and its wetlands habitats, before its too late

It really was Rosemary. Curlews are a flying hazard around military bases so the eggs would have been destroyed But this year they were taken to Slimbridge and raised in an incubator then pens. They took to freedom so well.

Spot the . A few of the 27 youngsters taking their first, tentative steps in the wild. They were raised from eggs that would have been destroyed on airfields. Now they are free. Wish them luck and hope they return to breed in 2 years. Thank you ⁦

In 4 weeks, this spoon-billed sandpiper chick (now 2-3 days old) will start the ~8,500 km trip to southeast Asia. If, of course, it can avoid ground squirrels, jaegers, foxes, ravens, & other predators here in Chukotka until then. Godspeed little doodle.

I can't believe this is real - is it a joke or do some people really hate plants that much? What possible harm were these bits of greenery doing? Come on Wiltshire Council, you can do better than that.

Why destroy this meadow-in-the-city? What possible harm was it doing?

“In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path [and disappear],” the plaque reads, in Icelandic & English. “This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening & what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.”

We would like to say a huge thank you to those who arranged and supported the Habberley Film event. They raised an impressive £1000, bringing our total above £30,000, and drawing down £10,000 match funding from the Whitley Animal Protection Trust.

Every house should have a means of collecting rain water - underground tanks - which should be the first port of call for the washing machine etc

TC is our most well developed curlew so far, but interestingly not the oldest. The team have noticed quite a wide range of difference in developmental times within the headstarted birds.

This is good - every home should have a hedgehog highway, swift boxes, bug hotels etc - no reason why not. And solar panels. Good to see:
