I'm especially worried about the nest under the hawthorn tree - as you know two female geese mated with the one male have both laid eggs in that nest, a couple of weeks apart. The first are due to hatch any day. If they disturb it we will lose the chance of finding out whether the second female takes over when the first lot hatch and whether all three combine to look after all the goslings once the last ones hatch. This is a valuable instance of bird observation that is going to be lost. I have urged the committee to rethink it but I doubt I'll get any where. I have already been dismissed by the chairman and my concerns over the wildlife thought irrelevant in the objection process. I feel hopeless and useless. I don't know how to get through to people.
