Birdlife, Solway Firth

Birdlife, Solway Firth, England

This evening, I am focusing on the Solway Firth which is an estuary and wetland area forming the boundary between England and Scotland on the west side of the island. This is a great spot for bird watchers, nature lovers and photographers. Some key points concerning the area:

  • An estuary or bay where the rivers Eden and Esk flow into the sea.
  • The salt-marshes host a number of RSPB (bird protection)¬†reserves plus various SSSI (Sites of Special Scientific Interest).
  • Contains rich farming and grazing lands.
  • At the western end of Hadrian’s Wall. Carlisle and its castle are nearby. Also, Burgh-by-Sands

A fascinating spot for hikers, birdwatchers and others interest in the outdoors and landscapes.
