Wildlife Trust call for teams to enter annual Sponsored Birdwatch
Tuesday 11th April
The annual event, re-launched in 2015 after a gap or more than ten years, has raised thousands of pounds for the charity’s work and is a great way to raise money whilst enjoying a spot of wildlife watching.
Teams of three or four people record as many bird species as possible within a 24 hour period in the county and prizes are awarded for the team that records the most species and the team that raises the most money.
Teams can take part on any day in May and Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust can provide teams with advice as to where to go to get the give the best chance of sporting a wide range of species.
Speaking about the event, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Head of Communications Erin McDaid said: “This is one of our most enjoyable events of the year and the staff team last year has a great time – seeing new sights and enjoying the county at one of the best times of the year to be out and about wildlife watching. Over the years the Sponsored Birdwatch has raised thousands of pounds towards our work and we’d be delighted to welcome new teams to the event this year.”
Participating teams can take part on any day in May and the Trust supplies a ‘tick list’ of likely bird species as well as sponsorship forms. Mr McDaid added. “The event is a great opportunity to get together with friends, family or colleagues and as there’s a trophy for the team that raises the most sponsorship, you don’t have to be a bird expert to enter.”
