Safety for Humans - Lethal for Swans.

Thanks to an observant reader of the Gurn for spotting the potential danger to our resident Swans. 

Network rail have recently installed a safety fence over the river Nairn viaduct bridge.

Today I gave it a close inspection and it could be lethal for any swans flying up river and over this bridge. The new fence is about 4 foot high, meaning the Swans will have to climb faster to avoid colliding with the wires.

Swans are our largest bird and need time and space to get over bridges, this location is dangerous. Network rail have been informed and will fit bird deflectors to give a visual warning of the new fence. Hopefully in the not too distant future !
