We finally got all our fencing in place last week but we need volunteers. We have a small number of nests with a small number of hanger-on’s who so far seem undecided; in years past these have sometimes gone on to lay and sometimes gone elsewhere. They are feeding along ther river (apparently sand eels) and about 300 metres north of the bar (apparently sprats). Last year they were catching small herring but not so far this year.

For the first time in Baltray we are seeing regular vandalism apparently from a group teenagers who have not heard about Extinction Rebellion!
