The RSPB has announced that bird nesting season has begun, and we have video evidence of magpies actively building a nest in the area where felling and shrub clearance is underway.
Under the Wildlife & Countryside Act this means the contractors need to leave an area of habitat around the tree undisturbed.
Magpies are one of the earlier birds to start building nests, but others are checking out potential sites and may start building soon.
If you are in the park and see birds going in and out of nests, or flying into a shrub with twigs in their beaks then please note the exact position of the tree / shrub and if possible take a photo and post the details on this website, or email wr4wildlifeATyahooDOTcoDOTuk
We will pass those details on to the ecologist on site to ensure the nests are left undisturbed.
