Species Protection Warden - Neston Reedbed, Dee Estuary

Posted:
Wednesday 14 February 2018
Vacancy type:
Practical conservation
Location:
Dee Estuary, England

What we're looking for

Neston reed bed is a vital habitat in the Dee Estuary and is home to specialist species such as reed warbler, water rail, marsh harrier and, historically, bearded tit. In previous years the habitat has been subject to accidental fires, damaging it for the entire breeding season. We are looking for people to patrol the area to minimise damaged caused to the reed bed while protecting a home for nature.

The skills you need

Due to the isolated location, own transport is essential. Any previous experience of dealing with members of the public is useful but not essential. Some knowledge of birds would be helpful, but again not essential as training can be provided.

Your time

Minimum:
1 evening a week
Duration:
Ongoing
Period:
late March - June
