Fence markers for grouse and Sitka spruce removal – December 6th & 11th

Join us for a day (or two!) of  practical conservation tasks at RSPB Airds Moss on December 6th and 11th. We’ll be working with our partners, RSPB Scotland to make improvements for Black and Red Grouse. Grouse are threatened by fence collisions, which can be a significant cause of mortality. Many of the older fences at Airds Moss are not very obvious to flying birds so we’ll be adding markers to make them more visible (pictured below). We’ll also keep an eye out for any Sitka spruce saplings (a non-native species) and remove these from the bog.
