Supporting the curlew

Welsh artist hopes to help save this iconic bird in the Shropshire Hills

Sales of this gorgeous picture by wildlife artist Owen Williams will support a Shropshire-based recovery project dedicated to helping the bird in shot.

The curlew is a creature in decline – particularly so in lowland and non-moorland areas. But in the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Marches there’s a local population of around 40 breeding pairs, a number the Curlew Country recovery project wants to see rise.

It’s working with farmers to monitor and protect these birds, and £15 of every print of Owen Williams’ picture sold will go to the cause.

“To know that Curlew Country is now working hard to reverse this sorry tale of decline is heartening and is why I was so happy to be able to help in a modest way by producing the artwork for this print,” says Owen.
