Drone guide to limit wildlife disturbance

Published

on

THE PEMBROKESHIRE COAST NATIONAL PARK AUTHORITY has released new drone guidance for recreational users that seeks to limit the disturbance the aerial devices can cause to protected wildlife.

As well as reiterating general safety advice from the Civil Aviation Authority’s Drone Code, the guidance will help recreational users of drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to understand the impact their use could have on rare species and on other people’s enjoyment.

National Park Authority Biodiversity Officer, Sarah Mellor said: “While the Drone Code focuses on safety, we have produced this simple guide to help protect the array of wonderful wildlife that attracts many people to Pembrokeshire.

“Species such as seabirds and seals are particularly vulnerable when they are breeding or nurturing their young and even low levels of disturbance can impact on them and can lead to reductions in populations.

“The guidance also highlights how livestock can be easily startled by drones, including the sheep, cows and horses that graze the coastal slopes alongside the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

“We want everyone to enjoy their visit to Pembrokeshire, so being aware of the impact drones can have on other people and the area’s peace and tranquillity is also important.”

The guidance has been prepared in collaboration with partners including commercial drone operators, Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum, National Trust, Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, Natural Resources Wales and Pembrokeshire County Council.

The information will be updated as more rules and research findings are released. The document, which is available from the National Park Authority’s website, can also be printed as a reference guide.

You can download the guidance by visiting www.pembrokeshirecoast.wales/filming.

Milford Haven: Cabins to appeal to glampers

Published

on

FOUR new arrivals are in place at Milford Waterfront offering visitors a unique on-water ‘glamping’ experience.

The Floatel Cabins were transported from Amsterdam to Pembrokeshire by road before being lifted into the marina by crane yesterday. The self-contained cabins measure 9m x 4m and feature an en-suite shower room, private balcony, WiFi and locally sourced works of art. Each will sleep two people, with one designed to cater for disabled guests in comfort and another that’s dog-friendly.

Over the next few weeks the cabins will be connected to the necessary utilities before fixtures and fittings are installed. Once ready, the accommodation will be managed by Quality Unearthed – a Pembrokeshire based holiday lettings agency that specialises in unusual properties.

Welcoming the arrival of the Floatel Cabins is Clare Stowell, Director of Property and Tourism at the Port of Milford Haven. She said “This is a fantastic milestone for us and I’m delighted to have a really unique attraction right here at Milford Waterfront. We plan to use high quality furnishings from local suppliers to create a quirky yet quality feel with a strong Pembrokeshire identity which I’m sure will be very popular with guests.”

“Milford Waterfront is fast becoming a busy, vibrant destination with attractions to suit people of all ages and interests” Clare added. “As such, the Port is investing millions of pounds into the development over the next 5-10 years to create new hotel, retail, leisure and residential facilities to complement the existing offering”.

The Floatel Cabins are part-funded by the Coastal Communities Fund. The Coastal Communities Fund is funded by the Government with income from the Crown Estate’s marine assets. It is delivered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of UK Government and the Devolved Administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

It is anticipated that the accommodation will be ready for letting by the end of the year. More information can be found at www.milfordwaterfront.co.uk/floatelcabins
