The RSPB Beached Bird Survey needs more volunteers – can you help?
The Beached Bird Survey is an effective way of monitoring trends in oil and other pollution incidents that affect seabirds. The RSPB needs more volunteers to take part in this simple survey in SW England so we can increase our coverage of accessible coastline. It involves walking an allocated stretch of beach and recording any oil and the number and species of any `beached’ birds. Details of the survey and requirements are on the link below.
To register your interest in volunteering for Beached Bird Survey, please contact Natasha Simmons (email@example.com) with your name, contact details and coastline of interest. We will hold some meetings for existing and new volunteers later this year to which you will be invited. We will match new volunteers with beaches before Christmas and provide all the information you need ahead of the next Beached Bird Survey in February 2015.
