Premier Post - MCofS Crag Access & Bird Nesting Update 2010

MCofS - on 12 Apr 2010
The MCofS has managed to pull together up to date information on the crags where there is a bird nesting issue this year affecting access http://www.mcofs.org.uk/advice-and-policies.asp . Due to the very different access laws in Scotland, these are not "restrictions" as they are in England and Wales. In Scotland, the MCofS has gathered this information so that you can make an informed decision about responsible access and avoid falling foul of the law that means if you recklessly disturb protected species at or near their nest you could be committing an offence under the law. To understand your rights and responsibilities, read the general advice applicable to all climbing in Scotland on the same page.

The MCofS has been working hard on your behalf to buidl relations with bird interest groups an dindividuals that ofetn we need to rely on to provide this information. The other vital source of information are climbers themselves - you! If you have information about other crags, or have an update on nformation about the listed crags, please let us know through the MCofS A&C Officer hebe@mcofs.org.uk

In reply to MCofS: a picture of each schedule one bird might help, I for one will not recognise any of them! I'm guessing quite a few people don't care enough to look them up.

I'll start precedings

Chough
black feathers, orange or red beak, smaller than a sea gull bigger than a robin!
