from 0pp

Delight in the joys of spring across a range of habitats including woodland, estuary and coast in search of birds, butterflies and wildflowers. Hopefully there will be nesting ospreys at Foulshaw Moss – a rare habitat of raised bog - as well as tree pipits, stonechats and green hairstreak butterflies. You may also spot snipe, hobby and if lucky, water rail. There should be wildflowers in the woods such as wood anemone, primrose and maybe some early bluebells. At the coast there are good chances of seeing grey seals, eider duck, oystercatcher and three species of tern (Arctic, little and common) around South Walney and Foulney Island. If you are really lucky you could also spot the rare roseate tern – look out for a pink-tinged underbelly.
