Curlews in Crises – Securing the Future for Breeding Waders

In partnership with Curlew Life, the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership invite you to join us for our third workshop in the series that focuses on the plight of the curlew and other breeding wader bird species once commonly found roaming the farmlands and wetlands of the Lough Erne landscape.

This workshop is the third in the series that focuses on the plight of the curlew and other breeding wader bird species once commonly found roaming the farmlands and wetlands of the Lough Erne landscape.

We are delighted to be joined by guest speaker Mary Colwell of the Curlew Recovery Partnership and Michael Stinson, project manager of Lough Erne Wildfowlers Council.

Mary Colwell is a writer, producer and lover of all things curlew. Published in 2018, her book, Curlew Moon, chronicles a 500mile journey on foot from the west coast of Ireland to the east coast of England, to discover what is happening to this beautiful and much-loved bird. Amongst her other achievements, Mary instigated the first ever World Curlew Day in 2017and is chair of the Curlew Recovery Partnership. Her work to promote the plight of the Curlew won Mary the BTO’s Dilys Breese Award for Outstanding Science Communication in 2017 and the WWT Marsh Award in 2018.

Michael Stinson is an ecologist who works as Project Manager for the Boa Island Breeding Wader Project undertaken by Lough Erne Wildfowlers’ Council (LEWC) and also runs his own ecological consultancy Erne Environmental. The Boa Island Breeding Wader Project is an innovative grassroots partnership primarily between LEWC and local landowners (who are critical to the success of the project) on Boa Island Lower Lough Erne. The project receives support from Lough Erne Landscape Partnership, Department for Infrastructure, Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust and Wildlife Habitat Charitable Trust.

Through this seminar we will discuss:

– Memoirs of a lost generation

– The role of people in saving these species for future generations

– Local success through the Lough Erne Wildfowlers Council

– Actions for all – how to get involved
