Solway Coast AONB

The Solway Coast AONB came under full scale management in 1996. The area stretches from its easterly boundary at Floriston on the Border Esk to Maryport on the West Cumbrian Coast. Its area covers approximately 118 Sq KM. The staff and management of the Solway Coast AONB are totally committed to the area, working in partnership with the Joint Advisory Committee in order to continue the excellent work already completed to protect and enhance the area.

Lockdown Session – Meet Me On The Corner

We thought this Lindisfarne song might be appropriate in the current circumstances as we are now able to ‘meet on the corner’, albeit 2 meters apart. The video is set to the background of The Kings Arms, situated on the corner in Bowness on Solway where we regularly meet for music sessions – we look forward to returning sometime soon.

Have you spotted this very talented fisherman on the River Kent?

The elegant little egret was once a rare visitor to our shores, but can now it is regularly be spotted throughout England and Wales. It is a small, white heron that feeds on small fish and crustaceans.

Many thanks to Jan MacArthur for sharing this video.

A little video of beetles living their lives to brighten your day!

Going on a walk or into your garden can be a great way to see lots of great wildlife. This whole video was filmed using a phone during a short walk and shows a few different species of beetle seen just outside Ambleside. Species identification using the footage are at the end of the video, so if you want to you can try and identify them yourselves.

Comment any images you have of any of the species in this video, as I am sure we would all love to see them.

Monday morning’s reason for apologising during a work call: this duck walked into my kitchen. I do not own a duck. https://t.co/KqOQwC5KHu
