Newcastle/Cross Ash

Main Sighting: Curlew
Hi there, Every Spring I see and hear one or two Curlew flying past my house. I live between the small hamlets of Newcastle and Cross Ash in Monmouthshire. I have no idea where these birds may be breeding and I wondered if any GOS members also see them in my area. Given the large number of predators in this area I don't expect that they're very successful if they do breed. Still, it's a fantastic sight and a wonderful sound.
