Another nine bush stone-curlews are now ready and waiting to be released during the coming week. All of the curlews are fitted with leg bands and small radio-transmitters attached to their tail so we can keep track of where they are moving.

With the rain we’ve had, and the weather warming up, there should be plenty of food around for them!

How many curlews can you see in the picture above? Lucky they have transmitters on or we would never find them again!
