Saturday 25th March 2017

Branston Gravel Pits
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!
