How much longer are we going to be able to see these beautiful little birds along our coast at Happisburgh with all the erosion of the sandy cliff faces
In reply to Robbo:
Robbo said:Nice photos. One of several species where I think far more could and should be done to boost numbers. Many nests got flooded out earlier in the year. There are plenty of reserves, not just RSPB, that could set up artificial banks for them. Yes, not cheap. But they work.
it would be interesting to know what the success rate of artificial banks is. I know the one at RSPB Saltholme works but in the years that I used to visit Upton Warren nature reserve I never saw their wall being used. I also don't remember seeing the one at Seaton Wetlands in use though i only visited there a hanful of times over the couple of years I lived down in Devon.
