Call for ‘paws on paths’ for bird breeding season

‘From 1 March until 31 July, birds start breeding, taking advantage of warmer weather, availability of food and nesting materials, making it crucial to give them the space they need.

People and dogs should avoid walking through gorse, heather and other low growing vegetation, because you can easily scare birds or harm birds’ nests. If disturbed repeatedly, birds cannot incubate their eggs or feed their young and nests can be abandoned leaving eggs or chicks exposed to predators.’
