Proposed SPA designation at Morecambe Bay, Duddon Estuary and adjacent coast

Natural England are working on the development of recommendations to combine and extend Morecambe Bay and Duddon Estuary Special Protected Area (SPA) to create a single designated area. Both sites host internationally important breeding and non-breeding water birds listed under the Birds Directive such as the little tern Stemula albifrons and sandwich tern Sterna sandvicensis. The proposal forms part of a wider programme to establish SPAs at sea to protect breeding, migrating and wintering birds of international importance within the UK.  For more information follow the link here.
