Tankers or Wildlife ?

Was going through some of my archive photos and came across a few with Tankers in the background. This is relevant to the current ship to ship oil transfer proposals outside the Cromarty firth. 

These particular shots show the size of these vessels and you can imagine many of them anchored adjacent to Nairn just a few miles away. The engine noise and fumes 24/7 throughout the summer and good weather, with the ever present danger of pollution - accidental or otherwise.
It's not only the marine wildlife, but our Swans and hundreds of other birds throughout the Moray firth that will be at risk. 

For the Cromarty Port authority to make a few extra bucks, it s not worth risking our precious environment and wildlife.
