Britain’s climbers are being urged to do their bit for conservation by keeping an eye on climbing restrictions.

Each year, voluntary curbs on climbing are put in place to enable birds to nest in peace on many climbing crags. Details are included on a poster which is being distributed to indoor walls throughout the country.

The poster is also available to download from the British Mountaineering Council’s (BMC) website.

The BMC says its longstanding relations with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and other conservation bodies ensure restrictions are kept to a minimum.

The UK is recognised for its importance to migrating and wintering bird populations.
