βeta: Walked down just to have a look at the route and at the time (26th June 2021) the Peregrine falcon nest just to the left of the upper section is definitely still active as we saw 3 young birds flying out from there. Although the restrictions lift on the 30th of June, it might be worth giving them a couple more weeks!
