A rare sight these days in our fields but as a small boy that is longer than I wish to remember they were common sight.
In fact I can remember eating the odd Curlew egg for breakfast. Something one would never do these days.
But they were so common then you could hardly walk across the field without treading on the nest.
I'm ashamed now that I have eaten the eggs but as I said it was completely normal in those days and nothing was thought about it. 🤔😒. I hope that you understand where I'm coming from.
Its a great image of this uncommon bird
