Bird of the week - Eurasian Curlew

Eurasian Curlew -Numenius arquata-

The Curlew, with its special beak, is one of the waterbirds that breed at Lista.

It arrives early in the spring, the first ones arrive already in March and big flocks in migration are visible throughout April. Regarding the migration, the Curlew is particularly remarkable by the fact that many birds fly southwards already in late June. By then, you can see quite large flocks moving westwards over the fields at Lista.

Unfortunately, there has been longer periods between the melancholic whistle tones at Lista and other big parts of its range. The Curlew is a shy bird that requires space and untouched marshlands, which is becoming difficut to find nowadays.

Data from Lista Fuglestasjon since 1990:
