Sand Martins Return to Attenborough

Sand martins have just arrived back at Attenborough and are establishing their colony for the year – any disturbance could cause a nesting failure, which would influence returning birds for years to come. So can all sailors should make themselves of the limits of sailing area, as marked on page 28 of the club handbook, and seen via link below. In addition, we have been asked by the Wildlife Trust to make sure boats avoid the peninsular that contains the Visitor Centre. Overall it is best not to sail too close to the southern shores of our area and avoid sailing too close to our islands.
