Easy Peesie Environmental Enhancement

The RSPB Scotland-led Peesie Project is offering farmers and land managers around Tomintoul and Glenlivet the use of specialist equipment to improve habitats for nationally declining wading birds. 

This is to protect and create the best possible habitat for lowland farmland waders such as lapwing - locally referred to as "peesies" - curlew and redshank.

A rush topper and weed wiper are available for loan to farmers in order to manage rushes on their land. This will enable them to create better conditions for feeding and nesting birds as well as improving grazing conditions for livestock.

The machinery was purchased through the RSPB Project, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund provided through the Tomintoul & Glenvliet Landscape Partnership (TGLP).

You can find out more on the project website.
