    If you would like to document recreational disturbance of birds in coastal / estuarine parts of our district please add them to the website in a format similar to the above.

    I will then forward them to Mandy Knott– the Coastal Lead Adviser for Morecambe Bay, Wyre and Lune Estuaries for
    Natural England. Mandy is keen to receive them and factor them into plans for minimizing recreational disturbance.
