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.

As far as possible we now need people to stay at home.

Social (physical) distancing applies to adults and children and everyone should do what they can to stop coronavirus spreading.

Together we can protect our NHS and save lives #Cumbria #StayHomeSaveLives

⚠️ADVICE ON CORONAVIRUS-RELATED WASTE ⚠️

The council is offering some advice to households that may contain someone suffering with coronavirus symptoms on what to do with their waste.

Waste from possible cases and cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues):

➡️Should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full.
➡️The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.
➡️It should be put in a suitable and secure place and marked for storage until the individual’s test results are known or at least 72 hours has passed.

Waste should be stored safely and kept away from children. You should not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.

➡️If the individual tests negative, this can be put in with the normal waste
➡️If the individual tests positive, then store it for at least 72 hours and put in with the normal waste

If storage for at least 72 hours is not appropriate, arrange for collection as a Category B infectious waste by a specialist clinical waste contractor. We do not offer a clinical waste collection service. They will supply you with orange clinical waste bags for you to place your bags into so the waste can be sent for appropriate treatment.

The Gorse flowers on the dunes at Mawbray have a buzzy visitor.
Not sure the exact species of Bee but it’s a large size and a very welcome sight.
I love Mawbray – always something to see.

Bar Tailed Godwits, Cormorant, Curlew and Little Ringed Plover. The waders overwinter on the Solway Coast in huge numbers.
