Meadow birds

Eurasian Curlew

Curlews are migratory birds. From March to July they are in their breeding grounds, which include the German state of Lower Saxony and the Dutch province of Fryslân. When their chicks have fledged, both adult and young birds migrate to north-western Europe or Africa to spend the winter. Depending on the weather, Curlews also winter in the Wadden Sea.
