Saving Pomona, the un-manicured area visible from Cornbrook Metrolink Station, is a national conservation issue that everyone who loves wildlife should support.
Salford Docks closed in 1982 and subsequently the area became a breeding habitat for rare Little Ringed Plovers, Skylarks, Lapwings, Ringed Plovers and the Twitter Bird. Pomona is the only real breeding habitat remaining for the Schedule 1 species Little Ringed Plover and developers would be well advised to avoid incurring the wrath of the Twitter Bird with its big beak and powerful influence through Social Media.
Furthermore, displacing the Twitter Bird will have devastating consequences as it characteristically broadcasts, through tweeting, practically anything, good or bad. This could place Manchester, Salford and Trafford in an unflattering light, globally, if it fails to take special care of it’s ecological treasures.
