Its a really important time of year for our ground nesting birds, please see the message below.
This message applies to birds on the coast, and also birds in grassland and the undergrowth. Staying on established paths is a good way to help.
The picture above is an archive one from 2014. Its a lapwing nest on an anthill, and lapwing, like all ground nesting birds, can be vulnerable to disturbance.
We spend 90% of net income on conservation, public education and advocacy
