    with Clear Buckhaven & Methil.

    Created/last updated: 04/08/2020

    About this opportunity:CLEAR is wanting to gain an aerial overview of communicability gardens and may outreach planting sites where they have worked and will do more in future
     •  The sites are all in the wider Buckhaven and Methil area but include the surrounding countryside, roadside verges as well as some community events
     •  This would help not only record what has been done but also identify what more could be done by way of planing
     •  Photos can also be used in informational and promotional work
     •  They are looking for an experienced (or at least reasonably expert) drone operator/photographer to carry out this photographic survey
     •  This can generally be done on days/times to suit although coverage of occasional community events would be helpful
     •  It would be good to have photos of the same sites in different seasons
     •  There are at least 15 main sites but many more smaller sites planted plus severe coastal erosion south of Buckhaven
