The Ring Ouzels are back at Stanage and have started nest building in the Green Crack area. As of today (signs should be in place by tomorrow) there will be a restriction on climbing extending from April Crack to Narrow Buttress.
This is a traditional site and the restricted area is the same as in previous years. As yet this is the first pair building; if more appear other restrictions may be put in place. Likewise pairs sometimes move so restrictions may be removed. If in doubt, please follow the on site signs and keep an eye on the thread linked from this news item, which I'll keep up to date.
Following last year's poor breeding season Ouzel numbers are low and this could be a critical year. Your cooperation will be much appreciated.
