Volunteers

Heronwatch is run by volunteers, but don’t don’t worry, they are all experts! Ask them anything!

Herons have been continually surveyed in Britain since 1928.  The Ellesmere heronry has been here since 1970 when it started with two nests.  The ‘Heronwatch’ began as a project in 1990 and has attracted many visitors to the site giving the Rangers and volunteers an opportunity to inform the public about the wildlife and the importance of looking after the environment.

Herons are at the top of the food chain so are an excellent indicator if there are any problems (pollution, etc) in the environment.

New volunteers are always welcome!
