Poole Harbour Special Protection Area and Bird Sensitive Area

There has recently been a collaboration of several organisations including Southern IFCA, Natural England, Borough of Poole, Poole Harbour Commissioners and the Angling Trust, looking at how best to protect some of the harbours most sensitive feeding sites for over-wintering waders and wildfowl. Together they have created a map highlighting the areas where the activity of bait digging should and shouldn’t be carried out over the course of the year.
