Lake District Bird Breeding Access Restrictions

Peregrine Falcon – Photo Wikipedia

Spring has nearly sprung and Lakeland’s Ravens and Peregrine Falcons are feeling frisky. To protect these wonderful creatures the BMC, FRCC, LDNP, NT and Natural England meet each January/February to agree which crags and climbs should have restricted access during the spring (Ravens 15 Feb to 31 May; Peregrines 1 March to 30 June) to maximise the chance of successful breeding. All groups at the meeting share the common aim to minimise the restrictions while still protecting the birds.

Once set the restrictions are regularly reviewed and lifted as soon as they are no longer needed.
