Protecting Purple Sandpipers
To minimise disturbance to the birds during our works, we will be putting several mitigation measures in place:
- A disturbance-free area will be maintained to allow the birds to roost at all states of tide.
- Noise levels will be monitored to ensure they are not exceeded.
- New rock installation will take place during the summer season where possible.
- 40 artificial tide pools will be installed in the new rock revetment.
