Question Change of Management at Gilfach

Does any one know if the rumour is true, a friend has informed me that Pip is no longer at Gilfach and the incoming manager has banned tripods and monopods, affecting birders and photographers, seems a bit odd?

Ignore that almost true, it applies to the farm yard, can't believe people would use calls during the breeding season, shame about the meal worm though, always nice to feed the birds in exchange for a picture or 2.

Guidelines for Photographers
and Birdwatchers visiting
Gilfach Farm Nature Reserve
For those of you wishing to photograph birds or any other wildlife during your visit to Gilfach, we kindly ask that you follow some guidelines which are supported by the Nature Photographers Code of Practice:
Always keep a respectful distance from wildlife - do not disturb or harass animals just to get a good photograph.
Tripod stands are not allowed in the farmyard as this area should be kept clear for all visitors to enjoy.
We no longer allow visitors to feed the birds anywhere on this SSSI nature reserve.
Phone apps and other “bird call” devices should not be used as they can cause undue stress and confusion.
Redstart
by Rodney Holbrook
Many thanks for your co-operation. Please feel free to talk to a member of staff if you have any questions about these guidelines.
To share your photographs with RWT, email: [email protected]
And don't forget to make a donation and help us to conserve the wildlife you are photographing!
Thank You - Radnorshire Wildlife Trust

I found this site Steve: http://www.rwtwales.org/index.php/ra...serves/gilfach

There's a link for "Guidelines for photographers" on it, which says "tripod stands are not allowed in the farmyard".

That's all I can find.
