Bird Restrictions 2008
The UK's birds will be scouting around for nest sites and raising their young. Please play your part towards conserving our feathery friends and stick to the BMC's agreed nesting restrictions.
The UK is widely recognised for the international importance of its wintering, migratory and nesting bird populations and the BMC's longstanding relations with the conservation bodies has ensured the restrictions are as minimal as possible.
Keep an eye out for the 2008 restrictions poster at your local climbing wall and you can download it here
