Tomorrow and again on Friday, there will be restricted access at Harrington Airfield due to bird ringing operations. Access to the surrounding roads, concrete track and footpaths will all be unaffected, but the scrubby area associated with the old airstrip and bunkers will be used for mist-netting. Any visiting birders are asked to be aware of these sessions and the fact that nets and traps provide something of a hazard to the unwary. In addition it is asked that birders do not linger next to nets or bring dogs on to the trapping area.
Anyone interested in seeing this work first hand to the future is very welcome. Thank-you for your understanding and patience.
