Hire of machinery & associated implements to complete scrub management works on Trasna Island, Lower LoughErne RSPB Reserves

RSPB would like to invite quotes to provide hire of machinery & associated implements for a maximum period of 8 weeks to RSPB Lower Lough Erne Islands Reserve to complete habitat management works for Curlew through the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership on Lower Lough Erne.

The RSPB in Northern Ireland intends to improve the habitat on Trasna Island on the Lower Lough Erne Islands Reserve to make them more attractive for breeding wading birds, particularly curlew.  The habitat improvement will take the form of cutting and removing scrub and mature trees including ash, alder, willow, blackthorn, hawthorn and bramble and subsequent treatment of stumps.

This habitat management work is part of the larger Lough Erne Landscape Partnership Project (LELP) where RSPBNI is working in partnership with numerous natural and built heritage organisations and community groups to improve conditions for wading birds, improve protection of historic sites and provide access to the countryside.  LELP is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

RSPB NI is now seeking quotes from interested contractors to supply the equipment detailed below to complete habitat management works on Trasna Island, Lough Erne. For full details and application please click here.

Closing Date: 12 Noon, 18th December 2019
