Sponsor a woodcock for just £3 a month

Don’t miss this rare chance to get involved in important scientific research by sponsoring a satellite tracked woodcock.

For just £3 a month, you can follow your own bird’s location as it travels up to 10,000 kilometres every year, whilst scientists from the Game & Wildlife Trust build a unique picture of the woodcock’s migratory habits.

Each sponsor helps to pay for the satellite tracking, which has seen birds tagged in the British Isles travel to breeding grounds in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, including a 7,000 kilometre journey to Siberia. Without the support of sponsorship, we would not have known about these remarkable migrations or the details of stop-over locations that are vital to each journey.

We have been able to tag a further 11 birds in recent months, in seven English counties, plus Wales, Scotland, and Ireland and these are now available for sponsorship.

From as little as £3 a month, you can enjoy the pleasure of sponsoring one of these remarkable woodcock and supporting our research. In addition to being able to track your bird online, you will receive a sponsorship pack including a certificate, factsheet and your own woodcock lapel pin.
