The money will be used by the charity’s species investigations unit as it looks to protect the area’s raptors.
An RSPB spokesman said: “The investigations unit is thrilled to receive a financial contribution to make raptor persecution a thing of the past.”
A YCN spokesman said: “We believe strongly in helping the wildlife we love watching. Every year we donate 10% of the income from our Goshawk Safaris and Forest and River Birding Days to the RSPB Species Investigations Unit.
“We would like to thank everyone who booked with us last year – you are all bird conservation heroes.”
RSPB assistant investigations officer Jack Ashton Booth is taking part in a blog to highlight the unit’s work at tinyurl.com/3x2rbb3y.
