Published by Cirerone paperback 208 pages price £12.95
This is an area full of wildlife starting with the limestone of the Orton area with its rare flora and limestone paving. Then you have the Lune itself with the famous other Borrowdale with mixed woodland and great flora not forgetting an autumn run of salmon to view at Lune Bridge. Moving onto Sedbergh you have its steep valleys with native woodland with Redstarts and Pied Flycatchers. The bat caves of Kirby Longsdale add to the excitement of the area along with valleys full of Whinchats and Tree Pipits. Arkholme starts to see the wild Swans and geese in winter while the Lancaster area is full of rich walks full of warblers, dragonflies and butterflies. Dropping down towards Morecombe Bay you see its strong breeding and wintering waders not to mention 100s of wintering swans and geese and rare moths at Sunderland Point.
