When is a Curlew not a Curlew

We took a group of Birders down through South Norfolk the other week; they wanted to see Stone Curlews which are starting to gather in large pre-migratory groups. The maximum we counted in one flock was around 37 although I heard someone else had around 60. Maybe they ought to give their binoculars a tap. They usually hang around until the beginning of November before drifting off South although they may hang around longer or even over-winter if the weather is mild, The maximum sized flock I’ve ever had in Norfolk was 110.
