TT Tested?

Yet more disturbance for the birds of Swansea Bay (part of which is a SSSI)  with a plan to have 2 days (3rd and 4th of March) of motorcycle racing on the beach from the University to the Marriot hotel (http://visitswanseabay.com/index.cfm?articleid=47495 ). The intention might well be "...to bring this event to Swansea for the benefit of everyone" but it is difficult to predict what effect the disturbance is likely to have on feeding shorebirds. The effects could be relatively long term.
