Use of the RSPB logo
The logo must not be used to link to our site or in other ways represent the RSPB on other websites without explicit permission from the RSPB. The only exceptions to this rule are RSPB Local Group websites and RSPB Affinity partner sites.
Linking to material on the RSPB website
You are welcome to link to material on the RSPB website so long as appropriate credit is given in the link title. You may not link to images or other downloadable resources unless explicit permission from the RSPB has been sought, or it falls under the general copyright statement above.
Requesting a link from the RSPB website to yours
We do not have a generic 'links' page. We link to other sites as and when we feel it adds value to a page on our site. The decision to link is an editorial one.
We do not link to commercial enterprises of any nature except those that we have an affinity partnership with.
Many of the images that appear on this site are available from our commercial photographic library, RSPB Images.
