Notes

Appropriate training will be provided, and since you'll be giving up your time, it's only fair that we offer to re imburse your travel expenses (up to 25 miles). Please note the South Stack reserve is quite remote and so own transport is useful as there is no public transport to the reserve.

The RSPB is the UK charity working to secure a healthy environment for birds and wildlife, helping to create a better world for all of us. We belong to BirdLife International, the global partnership of bird conservation organisations. Your time and skills could make a real difference to the work of the RSPB and it would be great if you could join us. Nature is amazing help us keep it that way.
