Coastal Countryfile!

Our wonderful West Cumbrian coastline was featured on Countryfile this week!

The team visited Whitehaven to hear about what inspired local born artist Percy Kelly and also spent some time on the cliffs of St Bees with the RSPB hearing (and also seeing and smelling!) about the seabird colonies and why they find the sheer cliffs so ideal for nesting.  They also headed out onto the sea to learn about the voluntary netting ban which we’ve written about in our last post.

Countryfile also visited Walney Island, further down the Cumbrian coast, with the Cumbria Wildlife Trust, seeing the only grey seal colony in Cumbria.
