The Bird Aware Solent team spend their time visiting busy places where people and birds share the shorelines. We cover important areas from Hurst Spit in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, and across to Chichester in West Sussex.
Bird Aware Solent is a partnership of local authorities and conservation groups which helps safeguard the future of internationally protected geese, ducks and wading birds.
Our rangers talk to Solent’s visitors about its worldwide importance for wildlife thanks to its patchwork of protected habitats. Up to 125,000 birds migrate to the area every year from as far away as the Arctic.
Rangers also encourage people to follow the Bird Aware Coastal Code: to look out for birds; to move further away if they become alert; to keep dogs alongside them; and to follow requests on signs.
