Construction on site is well under way, with the site compound in place, felling progressing in the plantation and both roads being pushed southwards. We’ve been working hard to ensure that birds do not settle to nest within the works areas, where they could be disturbed. We’ve also identified and protected nests of breeding birds beyond immediate works areas. Two nests of greenshank, a specially protected species, to the west and south of works were given buffer zones within which no disturbance of any kind was allowed. We’re happy to report that both nests successfully fledged, with young greenshank now scuttling about in the vicinity!
