SPLASH POINT REPAIRS SET TO START - MAIL

Re: SPLASH POINT REPAIRS SET TO START

Whilst pleased to read  this news on Haven News I do wonder if the RSPB has been consulted about possible disturbance to the kittiwake colony? The chicks are now nearly fully fledged, but do not usually vacate their nests with the adults before around the end of July/beginning of August.

Since the time to complete the work means that this would not be finished anyway before then, would it not be better to leave the work until the colony has left for the year?

The last time repairs were carried out to the railings was in the Autumn when the kittiwakes had flown off.
