#019 Volunteering

For the past month or so I have been volunteering as a Peregrine Watch Volunteer Ranger for the Scottish Wildlife Trust at their Falls of Clyde reserve. You can view the blog for the site here: http://blogs.scottishwildlifetrust.org.uk/fallsofclyde. As a volunteer I complete a log of what the birds are doing throughout the day, and encourage anyone who happens to be walking by to talk a look at the birds through the telescopes we have. The main purpose of volunteers at the site is to establish a presence which will protect the birds and their eggs from any danger.

I have also been volunteering with the National Trust for Scotland as a Conservation Volunteer. At Grey Mare’s Tail, we worked to move boulders to protect the foundations of the bridge there.
