Some birds where seen but sadly some idiots decided to go walking off the public footpaths and wander all over the breeding grounds of critically endangered birds like Lapwing, Snipe & Redshank.
We ask people to please keep the the path for a reason, it's a working gravel pit and a dangerous place to wander, and importantly the breeding birds on site,
Not only did they wandering around breeding sites with large lenses but they also had a dog which wasn't even on a lead!
