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.
