Working with farmers

The RSPB works directly with farmers and crofters across the UK every year.

More than ever, the RSPB, farmers and crofters are working together to find ways to improve yields of farmland birds. With our large number of contacts in the farming and crofting community, we can ensure the advice we give is practical and realistic.
