It was only last year that two paramotors were reported to the police and received a warning for low flying in Wells Harbour. Again last night around 7pm two mindless individuals flew their paramotors recklessly low weaving in and out of yacht masts around the quay and the harbour channel. They then flew on to the Outer harbour scaring hundreds of nesting birds off their nests. It is a pity that a few spoil the reputation of so many others. The police have been informed of this new incident.
Again Harbour Master, Robert Smith is keen to identify those involved. The marshes and Outer Harbour berms are home to Schedule One breeding birds such as Little Terns and it is an offence to intentionally or recklessly disturb these birds while they are nesting. Other birds which nest in the area include Mediterranean Gulls, common terns, Arctic terns, oystercatchers and ringed plovers.
