Ospreys to be under inspection this year

Northumberland Wildlife Trust is seeking volunteers to help with the fifth Kielder Osprey Watch at Leaplish Waterside Park this summer.

The wildlife charity is looking to recruit a large team of volunteers to spend weekends, including bank holidays, and Wednesdays from the end of May until August, between 10.30am and 4.30pm, to staff an information area complete with information boards and telescopes set up for visitors to view the birds at their leisure.

Don’t be put off getting involved if you are not an expert as full training will be given at an induction session on Thursday, April 24, at the waterside park and all new volunteers will be in a team of three with members who have volunteered in previous years.

Anyone interested is asked to contact Lou Chapman on 0191 2846884 or louise.chapman@northwt.org.uk
