A new film highlighting the conservation by a Norfolk natural park is set to debut.

The video by Pensthorpe will focus on their conservation project to help protect the endangered Eurasian curlew and will premiere at Norwich Science Festival on October 26.

It will be played during a talk hosted by them, ‘A Curlew Calls’ has been created by Martin Hayward-Smith with leading nature and wildlife organisations including The British Trust for Ornithology, DEFRA, Natural England, Wild Ken Hill and Sandringham Estates.

The video charts the collection and incubation of over one hundred eggs from Ministry of Defence sites nearby – a licensed activity that happens because of the danger they pose to active aviation.

Chrissie Kelly, head of species management at the Pensthorpe Conservation Trust, said: “This vital conservation project has been quite a journey and to relive it through ‘A Curlew Calls’ has reinforced why we take part in such important initiatives.”

Following its debut, ‘A Curlew Calls’ will be shown at Pensthorpe’s stand at the festival, which will also feature a host of displays.
