@curlewcalls explores the relationship between nature & creativity, & asks, as nature disappears, are we compromising our ability to express ourselves in art, music & literature? Is loss of wildlife affecting human creativity? Aug 7, Radio 3 at 22.00 https://t.co/K26ctNQ9Cu

Quoted @markbradfield9

Very interesting article on grouse moors. https://t.co/5zlHVNS2QR

'Britain’s landowners have the power to change past mistakes. Just 175 people in England own all our grouse moors. They could transform our country for ever.' https://t.co/bV7AK1Nk0K

Cur-lee, cur-lee! One of my favourite wader families, all on one page and now available as an A4 mounted (12x16") print on Etsy! 

10% of the profits from this print run will be going to support the important work of @CurlewAction 😊

📹VIDEO: From eggs to fledged! In the heart of lockdown, seven eggs were seized from a property on a police warrant. It was touch & go, but thanks to dedicated care four hatched. Watch them spread their wings! 👇 @Natures_Voice @RSPBEngland @curlewcalls @WCDApril21 @syptweet https://t.co/tWQXBmtdxi

When Catterline became Joan Eardley's permanent home in the 1950s there was a salmon season from February to August when these fish were caught in bag nets. The nets were stretched out to dry on the grass above the high water line of the shore and Joan painted them on the spot https://t.co/UhZINqcKJL

The first Grey Plovers are returning from their Arctic breeding grounds. Where have they been and what conservation challenges do they face, around the globe?

Grab a hanky and spend 3 minutes watching “OUR PLASTIC BEACH” on #Vimeo https://t.co/QgJKKo8NUB

The world really needs this right now. Put your orders in for Christmas...https://t.co/B5O3Tmr50B🙄🤦‍♂️

What books can you recommend to share a vision of the future if we get things right? For me it’s @IsabellaTree’s ‘Wilding’ (off to Knepp tomorrocan’t wait); a book about the ‘Landscape Restoration’ of Carrifran and Mary Colwell’s @curlewcalls which breaks and inspires the heart.

Quoted @MyaBambrick1

Imagine if most schools had their own wildlife area no matter how small or big - an area where nature could thrive and engage with the pupils. I wonder how much biodiversity they could host and how many children could be inspired to take up the interest? 🤔🌱

Often part of primaries & increasingly, secondaries - hopefully the Natural History GCSE will encourage this further. It’s amazing how much life can reside in a small habitat & inspirational to see students’ ideas develop; it’s vital they are part of the process. @curlewcalls https://t.co/mTLOE1s2Iq

Quoted @BirdwatchExtra

The temporary ban on hunting Eurasian Curlew in France has been extended to July 2021 in order to protect this declining wader. Read more: https://t.co/JtBsYy4FLS

Good news indeed but the ban should be permanent @BirdwatchExtra @waderquest @WashWader @curlewcalls @CurlewCountry https://t.co/CjeYrn0ysp

Monet visited the Normandy coast many times, painting the English Channel from the same spot at different hours of the day, in all weathers. The image is so cropped it contains nothing but waves foaming up to the sky, exactly what filled his field of vision at that moment. https://t.co/DNAJo6k2wj

A big lump of granite, dragged down from Shap, 17 miles to the north, during the last ice age 20,000 years ago and dumped in our field.

It’s a beautiful decorative stone, formed 394 million years ago. 

This probably weighs over 2t if anyone wants to buy it per kg! https://t.co/y2Y8F36j3T

Cows. Dangerous. Worked with them for years but you get complacent. Won’t be dancing tomorrow. As chucked into concrete today. Then went on to attack another 2 helpers. Any breed could do it. Christ it was fast. V lucky. 7th life gone. Warm bath and alcohol will sort. https://t.co/EWHr2HCbGi
