A MILLION British migratory birds are at risk because of the environmental failings at Doñana National Park.

The WWF has issued a warning about the large number of birds as Spain fails to protect one of only two Andalucian national parks.

Dredging, pollution and illegal water extraction are putting pressures on the resting grounds for water water.

In fact, the situation is so dire that UNESCO are considering placing Doñana on its list of World Heritage Sites in danger.

Chris Gee, WWF-UK senior campaigns manager: “It is worrying that almost a million UK birds could suffer because of Spain’s failure to permanently cancel all plans for dredging.

“People and wildlife rely on Doñana being properly managed and protected.”
