Curlew Cam - What am I looking at?
You’re looking at a livestream of a curlew nest in the Antrim Hills, Northern Ireland.
With their amazing curved bills, long legs and evocative calls, curlews are one of our most charismatic birds, but their numbers are in steep decline. RSPB NI is working with, land-owners, farmers and local communities, to help change their fortunes and secure the future of breeding curlews in the Antrim Hills and Lough Erne as part of the Curlews in Crisis project; a four-year LIFE Nature project funded by the EU LIFE programme, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency and other statutory bodies across the UK.
Follow the fortunes of our nesting curlews and immerse yourself in their secretive world. Listen out for the males impressive ‘bubbling’ song, the pipping of chicks from inside their egg and watch with us in anticipation as the hatching dates approach.
