Curlew

So called because of its rising fluty whistle "cour-lii", Curlew, with their long downward curved bill, are one of the most familiar Irish wetland species. Curlew can be seen year-round in Duncalk harbour, either singly or in groups, often feeding by probing deeply into the mud at low tide. Several pair breed in the area of Ballymascanlon Bay every year. Nationally Ireland supports as many as 40,000 birds with about 1500 in the Dundalk Bay area.
