A petition has been launched by local swan mannie Joe Telfer and reads:
" Designate River Nairn Area As Wildlife Sanctuary / Haven"
"The Tidal area of the river Nairn is home to over 200 water birds, Mainly Swans and Ducks. They need a safe area free from fishing tackle injuries, dog attacks and disturbance from human water sport activities. People get a huge amount of pleasure from the existence of these birds on the river. They are also a big attraction to the tourists who visit Nairn. " More here.
The petition will eventually be delivered to Provost Laurie Fraser.
