As part of London City Airport’s plan to increase the number of daily flights by 35% to meet increased demand (up to 110 extra flight per day), they have graced the perimeter of Southmere Lake in Thamesmead with warnings to completely stop feeding the birds. Perhaps we could all consider putting nature first and use the bus and train more instead? Then we would not have so much aircraft noise to bother us and could continue to enjoy the birdsong…
The birds were here first. Don’t build airports in silly places.
Absolutely Pete. I was living down river a few years ago when Boris Johnson led on the idea to build an airport on the Isle of Grain. The Thames Estuary must remain a Heathrow for thousands of pairs of migrating birds not aircraft.
