Baby Birds of the Bay Need Our Help to Survive the Summer

As the summer holidays begin and beaches become busier, beach-nesting birds struggle to protect their families. But simple changes to our behaviour during the breeding season (March – August) will give the young chicks the space they need to survive.

Have you heard? The 1000th dormouse has now been introduced to the UK in Morecambe Bay.

You might remember the humble dormouse as a sleepy, fairy tale icon which was once widespread throughout the UK. Sadly, their numbers have declined by a staggering 51% since 2000 and until now, our region has had just one lonely colony left at Roudsea.

Morecambe Bay Partnership has been involved in this multi-agency project recruiting and supporting volunteers from the local community to help re-introduce and sustain 30 hazel dormice (15 breeding pairs) into the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. full story
