What we're looking for
We are looking for enthusiastic residential volunteers to help us with all aspects of running the Onziebust Farm Reserve on Egilsay. All volunteers will also have the opportunity to assist on neighbouring island of Rousay at Trumland reserve. Habitat and estate management will be undertaken, as well as surveying and monitoring. We have a small herd of Shetland cattle, so you must be confident around livestock as some animal handling may be required for which training will be provided. Priority species at Onziebust include corncrake, breeding waders, greater yellow bumblebee. Trumland is an upland site with breeding hen harrier, red throated diver and seabird cliffs.
