Signs at Upton Ham to help protect nesting birds

It is nearly time for the Curlews to return to their spring and summer breeding grounds, so as in previous years, signs are being erected asking dog-walkers to keep their animals under control. Today at Upton Ham, with the support of the town council, the signs were put up in the teeth of Storm Erik.  In the next few days, it is planned to erect signs at Tewkesbury on the Severn and near Eckington on the Avon. Thanks to John Dickinson (with the beard) for designing the signs and to Gloucestershire Naturalists’ Society for funding production.
