Welcome to this privately run website, which is something of a personal notebook built up over very many years; I have no official connection with Cumbria Wildlife Trust, although many of these pages are incorporated in the Trust's website. This site covers the fabulous wildlife that can be seen within Cumbria, especially in the south of the county, which has many varied habitats.

There are also further sections about High and Low Furness and my home patch of Birkrigg Common, near Ulverston. The latter is a much under-rated heritage asset - as well as being one of the top ten sites in Cumbria for fungi, it also has geological, archaeological, astronomical, historical and cultural importance.

Comments, corrections and additions are welcomed; please email using the contact details found on each page.

PLEASE CHOOSE BELOW THE SECTION OF THE WEBSITE THAT YOU WISH TO VISIT.
WITHIN EACH SECTION YOU WILL FIND A MENU OF LINKS TO MANY DIFFERENT PAGES.
