Mary Cowell takes us on a 500 mile journey on foot, from the west coast of Ireland to the to the east coast of England to discover what is happening to this beautiful and much-loved bird. She sets off in early spring when the birds are arriving on their breeding grounds, watches them nesting in the hills of Wales and walks through England when the young are hatching. She finishes her walk on the coast of Lincolnshire when the fledglings are testing their wings. Curlew Moon chronicles Colwell’s impressive journey, weaving a gentle tale of discovery with the natural history of this iconic bird.
