Eurasian Curlew - Storspove - Numenius arquata

Curlew cna be seen all year round at Stag Rocks, with several often feeding on the shore. The largest numbers occur during the winter when larger numbers feed in the fields immediately behind the beach. Again, this species is a lot more numerous just around the corner in Budle Bay.

The record count during the period I counted waders there is 40 individuals (several times).
