Working with farmers

The RSPB works directly with more than 3,000 farmers and crofters every year. This includes providing advice to help with hundreds of agri-environment applications every year.

More than ever, the RSPB, farmers and crofters are working together to find ways to improve yields of farmland birds. With our large number of contacts in the farming and crofting community, we can ensure the advice we give is practical and realistic.
