Volunteer survey – 7th June 2018: Breeding Birds #2


Help CEI carry out the second Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) in the Muirkirk and North Lowther Special Protection area on Thursday 5th June. CEI staff and volunteers will head out across the peatland habitat to record breeding bird activity before returning to ‘basecamp’ to have a go at territory mapping. This survey will be carried out prior to and following restoration work to see if our restoration project has benefited the bird populations in the SPA.

A good level of fitness is required as there will be plenty of walking across uneven ground. You don’t need to be a bird expert to join in, but some knowledge of bird species will be advantageous. It will be a good opportunity to brush up your ID skills! Please bring wellies or walking boots/gators, waterproofs, something warm, a packed lunch and a drink and binoculars if you have them.

Please contact Daisy on 07766185987 or via daisy.whytock@ea-cei.org.uk for more information or to register your attendance at the event.
