Are you interested in becoming involved in the Elan Links Curlew monitoring programme?
We are looking for individuals who have some free time to help us monitor curlews in the valley.
This is a training day, but you will be expected to work independently (or in pairs) throughout the breeding season.
We will meet at the Elan Links Office, but most of the day will be spent out in the valley. Bring suitable clothing and footwear, and food and drink.
