The ECHO carried a story last week about plans down at the docks to relax some of the "anti-terror" access rules that effectively made getting to Seaforth way too much hassle for normal mortals.
Good news when it happens _ but I haven't heard of any change in access yet _ you still need to e-mail to apply for a permit, say when you're coming, what colour socks you have on etc etc
I'll let you know if I get more details _ especially as it's nearly Little Gull time now.
Meanwhile, if anyone hears more, please use the comment thingy at the end of this piece.
Still there's alway Crosby Marina or beach, where Little Gulls should be seen in a week or two, and the Ring Billed Gull and Med Gulls put in regular appearances.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies.....
