My right hon. Friend and I have regular discussions with Assembly Ministers. The Dee Estuary is a candidate 'Special Area for Conservation' under European Habitat Regulations. It includes two nature reserves and seven Sites of Special Scientific Interest. It supports a large bird population over the winter, and has a number of rare plants and animals, including 12 internationally important bird species.
