The NOA is lucky to be supported by a range of volunteers who make its work possible, ranging from volunteer wardens, bird ringers and trustees to data inputters. If you are able to help then please let us know if you can assist with any of the following undertakings:

  • 1

    Contribution to daily bird records; if you have been birding or wildlife watching on one of our reserves, we are always grateful for any sightings which can be given to the warden on duty or emailed to us at info@noa.org.uk. Surveys of birds, insects, moths, amphibians, mammals or plants are all important to us.

  • 2

    Participation in our on-going seabird-watching project; this involves recording birds flying past the dunes for timed periods

  • 3

    Entry of data onto spreadsheets, or into the BTO Birdtrack system (own PC plus internet connection would be helpful, but is not essential)

  • 4

    Helping with ringing activities (as a ringer, trainee ringer or “scribe”)

  • 5

    Practical and administrative assistance such as wardening reserves and help with secretarial tasks

  • 6

    We sometimes have a vacancy for a Trustee. If you have skills which you feel could be useful to the NOA, please make yourself and your skills known to us.

We are always extremely grateful for the practical support of our members in whatever capacity.
Please talk to our staff or email us at info@noa.org.uk if you would like to be more involved.
