About Hayle EstuaryUp to 18,000 migrant and wintering waterfowl flock to the Hayle estuary – especially during severe weather, when conditions here may be milder than elsewhere in the UK. But the reserve is under severe pressure from urban development and recreational activities. The RSPB is helping to safeguard the site as a refuge for birds and for its wider biodiversity.Not only is litter unsightly but it can do a great deal of harm. Large number of birds and other wildlife die around the UK each year as a result of entanglement in rubbish, including plastics or from plastic ingestion.These regular volunteer clean up events certainly help to reduce the amount of litter on the estuary.
