Guest Post: Calling local farmers and land managers

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

The Forest of Bowland is one of the best places for wildlife in the UK and has huge potential to provide even more homes for important upland birds including lapwings and curlews, as well as other animals such as brown hares and insects like green hairstreak butterflies and golden-ringed dragonflies.

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

As well as advice, the RSPB is also offering farmers in the Forest of Bowland 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 and landowners interested in chatting to Gavin about giving nature a home on their land can call him on 07814 462429 or email him at gavin.thomas@rspb.org.uk.

Gibbon Bridge Hotel

Thank you for considering visiting us at the Gibbon Bridge Hotel in the beautiful Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Someone once said that staying in a country hotel should be like ´being utterly spoiled in your own home´. This is quite simply what myself and my ´team´ aspire to when you stay with us.
