Wildlife Guidance

As the swans on the Cam have begun nesting, a reminder of the Wildlife guidance from the Cambridge River Users Group (also found in our Guidance for Coxes and Coaches).

Currently, the known nests are on the non-towpath side of Ditton Corner by the boat shed, on the non-towpath side of First Post Corner, and in a similar location to last year near Horningsea, downstream of Baitsbite Lock.
