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.

Great to see the mulcher ๐Ÿšœ making its way along the cycle way ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธfrom Crosscanonby to Maryport. It is removing a small amount of the build up of vegetation ๐Ÿƒso we can create a pollinator highway๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ‹The area will be scarified and seeded with wildflowers๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบThe cycle way looks a little bare now but it will soon be buzzing with bees, dragonflies and moths๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ๐Ÿœ

Fabulous photos. The whooper swans come all the way from Northern Europe and Scandinavia every year to overwinter on the Solway. Keep your eyes on the skies. It will make you stop still and say โ€œwowโ€. Wonderful winter visitors! Welcome again to the Solway, beautiful birds โค๏ธ

There was a real buzz at Milefortlet 21 today, where we are putting in the ground work to create a pollinator haven ๐ŸšœOpen Spaces cut and collected, scarified and seeded the land. The real busy bees ๐Ÿ though were the volunteers. They raked up the arisings on the scheduled monument where we are unable to take heavy machinery. Canโ€™t thank them enough for all their hard work. We couldnโ€™t of done it without them ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒบ
