Peregrine Closings 2016
« on: June 07, 2016, 08:29:10 PM »
From Chris Martin - NH Audubon biologist:

Temporary access restrictions are posted at the following five New Hampshire cliff sites in 2016:

Eaglet Spire (and adjacent walls), Franconia, NH
Holts Ledge, Lyme, NH
Painted Walls, Albany, NH
Rumney Rocks (Summit Cliff and nearby), Rumney, NH
Woodchuck Ledge (right/north end only), Albany, NH 

Peregrines are present at a number of additional cliffs where no closures have been posted because recreational use is minimal.  Climbers are advised to alter plans, and report the incident, if you encounter aggressive falcons during a climb. 

All areas will be open effective August 1.

NOTE: There are birds on Whitehorse in the center forested section above Echo Roof, but there are currently no restrictions on Cathedral or Whitehorse this year.
