A revised programme of work was immediately introduced near the nest site to avoid disturbance to the birds.
The revised programme includes an exclusion zone around the birds in which no work will take place. There are a number of staff monitoring the nest, and work will stop immediately if the birds display any signs of agitation as a result of the construction works.
Our observations since May indicate that the birds have become accustomed to their environment. However, until breeding has finished, or the chicks leave the nest, particularly noisy work, or work which causes vibrations, will not restart.
We would welcome observations from any local bird recorders of any activity from the birds.
