Sand Martins in the UK

Sand Martins are often held as a cute visitor until the bird wants to set up home in your sand pile in your quarry, along with 100 mates.

It's the time of year when Sand Martins start to arrive in the UK to breed having flown thousands of miles from the Sahara. All Cemex quarries have sacrificial sand banks to provide homes for these protected birds. Further information can be found in this website
