Sad news regarding Stone Curlews

Recent local news reports indicates that a number of Breckland Stone Curlews have been found dead and underweight due to the prolonged cold spell and persistent easterly winds experienced throughout March and early April 2013.
This post is written to ask if my followers could report Stone Curlew observations (living and dead) to the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) so that this beautiful species can be monitored accordingly - thank you.
With the promise of improving conditions, let's hope that our visiting migrants enjoy a healthy and successful breeding season.
