From March to September, The Parks Trust ask that all dogs are kept on leads in Howe Park, Shenley and Linford Wood.
Keeping dogs on leads helps prevent the disturbance to nesting birds and protects wildlife in these sensitive areas.
The Parks Trust’s Biodiversity Officer Martin Kincaid says:
“We would ask all dog owners to kindly do their bit to help our woodland birds. Please keep dogs on a short lead when in the woodlands – we are happy for people to exercise dogs off the lead outside the woodlands themselves. Some of our birds like willow warbler have all but vanished from Milton Keynes’ woods and we want future generations to be able to hear its beautiful song”.
