Wader survey opportunity in Oxfordshire

RSPB - Wading into 2016

The RSPB’s Upper Thames Wading bird project continues this year with another 58 sites to survey.  Over 100 volunteers pack their rucksacks and get up early to find and record wading birds alongside the Thames, Ock, Cherwell, Windrush, Ray and Thame rivers.

Going for a pleasant wander in the tranquil early mornings alongside a river, recording the wildlife you see and knowing that you are helping to conserve it, keeps our volunteers returning to survey year after year.  Do you want to catch a glimpse of a lapwing’s tumbling flight, hear the curlews soulful heart rendering “cour-leeee” or perhaps spot the nervous redshank treading lightly through the vegetation?

If you would like to survey your own patch of farmland, then please get in touch.  There’s a full training pack and staff on hand to support you through the survey season. Tel: 07736 722184. Many thanks!
