Definition of Favourable Conservation Status for Curlew (RP2926)

This document sets out Natural England’s view on the contribution England needs to make to achieve Favourable Conservation Status (FCS) for the Eurasian Curlew Numenius arquata. The England contribution is defined in terms of the natural range and population of the species and the extent of habitat necessary for long-term maintenance of populations.
This section contains the summary statement of the England contribution. Sections 2 to 5 describe the evidence considered when defining FCS for each of the three parameters. Annex 1 lists the references and Annex 2 sets out the UK and England position in the 10th Birds Directive report.
This document does not include any action planning, or describe actions, to achieve FCS where the species is not considered to be in FCS. These will be presented separately, for example within restoration strategies.
