Exciting new project about our beautiful birds of prey!

If successful in receiving National Lottery Heritage funding, a new project, Upland Skies, will help people the Peak District and Sheffield discover, learn about and share the love of birds of prey.

The project is being developed by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds), the National Trust, Peak District National Park, Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust and Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Upland Skies aims to engage with as many people as possible through public events, games, outings into the Peak District, talks and more, inspiring more people, from both urban and rural environments, to enjoy and learn about our birds of prey and their habitats.

An initial survey will help to build a picture of how much people already know about birds of prey and what activities they’d find most interesting and inspiring.

The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and includes a prize draw of £50 cash for one lucky participant so whether you’re already captivated by birds of prey or whether the wildlife on your doorstep is new to you, we want to hear from you to help shape this project.

The survey is available until Sunday 9th February.
