Protecting Redshanks around the Bay

Morecambe Bay Partnership is making it easy for residents and visitors to Morecambe Bay to spot its ‘Bird of the Month’ this month, by choosing one of only two wading birds that have red legs.

The bird in question is the redshank - often a migrant arriving on the shores of the Bay from Iceland ahead of winter, although some can be seen all year round.  There are around 25,000 breeding pairs resident in the UK all year and 130,000 redshank which just over-winter. full story
