Trust Members Success

This may have been one of the worst local summer seasons weather wise, but the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust continues to grow and do the business of caring for our River birds. We currently have 157 members and all should be proud of the part they play in supporting our river wildlife. The remarkable success and growth of the waterbird population is testament to your contribution - Thank you and well done ! 
I am heartened by the amount of positive comments from local residents and visitors alike who positively love to see our thriving river population.

 In addition to local members we have members from all over Scotland and the rest of the UK, as well as some members around the world. Supporting our wildlife costs the Trust over £2500 a year as well as many hours of voluntary unpaid work every week. As yet, no financial contributions has ever come from our local community council which many people cant understand, since the community and Nairn benefit from the Trusts work and the council have funds available. The Trust is non political and will not get drawn into divisive local politics, we take a pragmatic approach and concentrate on the welfare of the waterbirds and maintenance of their environment

Caring for sick and injured birds, removal of litter, remedial work to the island and moat, and destruction of dangerous alien plant species are some of the voluntary tasks we do.
