Nature conservation charity, the RSPB, would love to hear from local farmers and land managers who are interested in helping nature thrive on their land.

The Yorkshire Wolds and Coast is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK and has huge potential to provide even more homes for important farmland birds, as well as other animals from butterflies and bees to hares and hedgehogs.

As a result, RSPB conservation advisor Chris Tomson is offering free advice and support to anyone in the area who wants to manage their land in a more wildlife-friendly way.

As well as advice, the RSPB is also offering farmers in the Yorkshire Wolds and Coast area free farmland bird surveys. These stock takes will show what wildlife makes its home on a farm and, when repeated at a later date, will reveal how a farmer’s efforts are producing real results for wildlife.

Farmers interested in chatting to Chris Tomson about giving nature a home on their land can call him on 07900 164 601 or email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
