Thanks for any info.

The banned routes are up to date on the logbooks, I believe. There was a bird-ban because of nesting Peregrines but I believe they've flown now.

Thanks Paul. Just what i was after. I know in some areas the birds are nesting longer than normal and in new places.
But if they have flown then all good. Didn’t want to drive 1.5hrs to find out the ban has been extended due to the birds.

Thanks for the info

Hi Sean, sorry for coming to this thread late. I've had confirmation that the peregrines have flown and so you're fine to climb there. I think my sign may still be there - I will remove it on Sunday.

Cheers
