Henhole bird restrictions

Thread moved from Destinations to Crag Access

Does anyone know the extent of any bird restrictions at Henhole in The Cheviots this year.  BMC RAD mentions restriction until 30th June, but also says only updated for nesting in 2020.  Also not entirely clear if this would be for whole crag or just one or two buttresses.

Thanks, Robin

Hi, I'm not aware of anyone visiting and commenting on the nesting status. But they have used the location for years and it's likely that they are there. The crag isn't particularly extensive and any activity is likely to disturb them.

If you take the chance and don't mind the walk if you have to bail, then please let us know the outcome. The nearest alternative is the Bizzle a guide for which can be found here:

Thanks Steve, might go for the walk anyhow, although undecided whether we'd want to take the rope and rack for (another) walk.  Will see what the weather is doing and how arms/skin are after a couple of days on the sandstone.

Cheers, Robin

Hmmm, not much help for you. We did get up there, but on the only day of the trip with any dampness. We couldn't see any sign of nesting on the crag, but shortly after arrival it started drizzling, so we continued on the walk up to The Cheviot and didn't actually climb anything.
