What we're looking for

To enthuse and inspire everyone about raptors, especially peregrines and the far-reaching work of the RSPB. Symonds Yat is a busy location providing an amazing opportunity to bring wildlife to life. With a fantastic view of nesting Peregrine falcons, this viewpoint provides RSPB with an opportunity to give people close up views of these incredible birds and invite people to support the work of RSPB in all sort of ways helping everyone understand who we really are and raise our profile. Our friendly and chatty volunteers enhance a visitor's experience at Symonds Yat and adds value to this Forestry Commission site.
