RSPB opens entry for farming award

The RSPB has launched its annual search to find the farmer that does the most for nature.

The Nature of Farming Award aims to find the farmer who has put in the most work on their land to help threatened countryside species.

The competition is run by the RSPB, supported by Butterfly Conservation and Plantlife, and sponsored by The Telegraph.

The conservation charity has already received a high level of entries, with applications being accepted until April 20.

Last year’s winners, Carolyne and Somerset Charrington of Treshnish Farm, said: “We were extremely proud to have been chosen as the winners of the RSPB Telegraph Nature of Farming Award last year. 

“It was a huge boost to our confidence and proved that what we’ve been doing in terms of farming, conservation and sustainability is working.

“We have a popular coastal path that brings locals and visitors onto the farm daily, and it’s great to share their enjoyment of the wildlife they encounter.” 

All the details on how to enter can be found on the RSPB website at – www.rspb.org.uk/natureoffarming

  • The RSPB's needed to do something to deflect attention away from it's adverse policy of banning local widlfowlers and game shooters from going about their business when it buys large swaths of land and immediately set about banning shooting. They simply hate those who shoot and I'm puzzled that the CA gives them credence for sharing our values.
