Managing access with dogs in protected areas to safeguard breeding birds

This guidance has been developed for protected area managers and access officers, and is intended to help integrate access with dogs with safeguarding protected breeding birds. Its primary focus is on nature reserves and other designated sites, but similar management needs may arise in some sensitive areas in the wider countryside. Many of these approaches are also relevant to wintering birds. 11 pages. Published 2013.
