Hugh Harris: Lunt Meadows and Wetlands Nature Reserve, SD3402

Water vole (Peter Trimming)

Lunt Meadows is an entirely new 77 ha wetland nature reserve, located along the River Alt floodplain, owned by the Environment Agency, in North Merseyside. It is sited adjacent to an area of raised bank suspected to be the first point of overtopping in a flood event. In July 2010 the River Alt bank did breach in this location and an area of 80 ha was inundated to a maximum depth of 1m. Developing habitats include wet grassland, reedbed, fen and open water. The site is managed primarily for breeding waders and water vole.

Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are re-launching fresh for 2017

The survey below is time limited so please complete at your earliest opportunity! Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are re-launching fresh for 2017 with an updated group constitution and a rejuvenated sense of purpose. We are keen to connect with existing group members and with volunteers who have shown an interest in the past. The purpose of this survey is to reach out and gain some initial feedback which the committee can then assess to help make the group re-launch as soon as possible.

Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists

 

Merseyside BioBank Active Naturalists are an active group of naturalists, volunteers, wildlife recorders and more that have a passion for wildlife in North Merseyside and recognise the value and importance of 'biological recording' to help conservation and to ensure that the important places for wildlife are recognised and evidenced.

The members have wide ranging interests in wildlife and we share that knowledge and experience within the group to help each other to pursue and expand our interests and make us better biological recorders.
