Clwyd limestone nesting birds

Posted by BMC on 06/11/2006
Pinfold - a home to breeding ravens

The BMC recently accompanied John Lawton-Roberts (expert on birds of the Eglwyseg Valley) on a site visit to review the area's nest sites.

Despite a history of local persecution, the peregrine and raven populations thankfully appear to be recovering as established breeding pairs continue to successfully fledge new birds each year. This has 2 main conservation benefits - a stable local population and the migration of young birds into unhabituated areas.

Relations between climbers, local conservationists, Denbighshire County Council and landowners are very good and it therefore remains important that visitors to this excellent climbing area continue to adhere to the voluntary nesting restrictions. The restrictions currently only apply to 2 of the natural crags and on a couple of small quarries in the Trevor area, and have been narrowed down to specific routes either side of an established nest or to parts of the quarries.

For the full details see the Regional Access Database (RAD) at, www.climbingcrags.co.uk
