Readheads landing update.

 This was the sight that greeted me on a visit here last Thursday. I knew this fence was to be erected here, but not in such a short time span from it being made public which was very disappointing for many a visitor hoping for a last pilgrimage to this public right of way.  
The Kittiwakes have done amazing well this year under the circumstances ( nesting ledges boarded up etc.) and like I thought, they have used ANY available nesting ledges.(including a old ventilation outlet) to populate the area with 40 or so pairs nesting at this site. Cracking stuff only about 8 pairs down from last year!.

Still very sad to see this site almost lost.
