Rhaslas not looking good

The last sighting of little ringed plover at Rhaslas was the 29/05/15, birds possibly 2 pairs had been present since the 12/04/15 usually at 2 distinct locations. I've assessed it has 'breeding probable', I'm hoping that some fledged youngsters turn up soon so it can be proved.

I know we never mention breeding sites of Schedule 1 birds but recent news from the 'Nepotism is Best' crowd suggests that the site is being sold down the river; "...the proposed development complies with national and local planning policy. It would be sustainable in that it strikes the correct balance between social progress, the effective protection of the environment, the prudent use of natural resources and the maintenance of high and stable levels of economic growth. The recommendation is that permission should be granted subject to the completion of a section 106 agreement ..." released yesterday.

I'll bet a 12 pack of Spitfire that it will not be the last time we see the underlined, watch out Gwent.

  1. Very sad Mike. It seems that every law can be ignored or overlooked if the price is right.
