Cattle checkers at Eycott Hill Nature Reserve
Would you enjoy visiting Eycott Hill Nature Reserve (above) on a regular basis to check on the hardy native breed of cattle used for conservation grazing?

You'd need to monitor their condition, check their behaviour towards people and help provide information to visitors.

This is an exciting volunteer opportunity, which would require working outdoors, sometimes in poor weather. You'll need to be reasonably fit, as it involves walking some distance over rough, uneven ground.
