Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 February to 31 May

Reason: Nesting Birds

The restriction applies to the whole crag for nesting ravens. This site is regularly monitored and fledging often occurs here by early May so the restriction may be lifted earlier than the date mentioned above. Keep checking this page for updates.

2023 UPDATE: No nesting activity has been observed and as such the restriction has been lifted this year from 17th April
