Notes

The safety and welfare of our workforce is paramount at all times, throughout the activities we will be following safe working practices to ensure our workplace is Covid-secure. All volunteers will be asked to complete a Covid-19 susceptibility assessment before volunteering, and this may result in you not being able to get involved in the short term until the Covid19 situation changes. The RSPB speaks out for birds and wildlife, tackling the problems that threaten our environment. Nature is amazing - help us keep it that way. Your time and skills could make a real difference to the work of the RSPB and it would be great if you could join us.
