Cuadrilla quits Lancashire frack site “because of birds”

The Blackpool Gazette  reports Cuadrilla has pulled out of one of its potential fracking sites on the Lancashire coast. The company says it will not seek consent to frack for gas at Anna’s Road in Westby because of “technical constraints related to wintering birds”. Drilling was restricted to a six-month period because of the environmental impact of birds on nearby land. Cuadrilla is now looking at other sites and says it will begin work before the end of the year to return the site to its previous condition.
