RSPB and Pagham Harbour
The legal paperwork transferring the day-to-day management of core areas of Pagham Harbour from WSCC to the RSPB was completed on the 1st February 2012. It has taken a long time, but it has enabled a great working relationship to develop between the two organisations, who agree that this gives the management of the Harbour its best chance of a sustainable future.
There are a number of loose ends to tie up, but one of the most important jobs for the RSPB is maintaining the day-to-day service around the reserve so that it is ‘business as usual’ for all the regulars and visitors to Pagham harbour.
A number of Meet the RSPB days will be set up for the spring so that local people and visitors can raise any issues and concerns, and develop ways to make sure everyone can have an input into the reserve.
