Folks - a request out of the ordinary here..
We are well into our 24 hour surveillance night shifts at the Dyfi Osprey Project but are always on the look out for more volunteers. We have roughly 35 shifts to cover x 2 people per shift so 70 in all. If you could do just one that would be a great help - 70 will not look that many with a few chipping in. Shifts start at 9pm through to 6am - they are fun, honest! and there is a HUGE reward at the end of the shifts - three osprey chicks hopefully. I expect the first egg to hatch June 1st at which point we will finish with the night shifts. As a bonus you will also see a lot of wildlife that only insomniacs usually see - moths, owls, small mammals and nightjars when they return shortly. Elfyn has started the ball rolling today by arranging a shift.. don't be shy!
If you can find the time to do a shift please ring me on 07595 932 537. The osprey project's number is 01654 781 414, my home number is 01654 702 5921. Many thanks/diolch.
