Hi there.

Has work on the Greatham Creek flood defence scheme been completed now? 
Is full access to Seal Sands and the long drag and their hides now fully back for the public?

Not local (Leeds) and haven't been up to the areas for a days birding for a while and just wanted to know before planing a trip up. I think i did read on a website that the scheme was completed in November '18 but would love confirmation form a local birder.

few videos of the scheme here for any interested:

Further to Keith's comments, I was speaking to a yellow vested contractor on the site and he additionally remarked that the excavation of the ephemeral lagoons ( compensation for the loss of fresh water pools on Cowpen), had also been completed.
These are on SABIC land, not open for public access, and are adjacent to the brine reservoirs.

The Quest to rolex replica One of the first visionaries to predict test-tube meat, you'll be surprised to learn, was Winston Churchill. Back in 1931, before he became Prime Minister, rolex replica wrote a magazine article about rolex replica progress in which he predicted that by 1981, "we shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium" [replica watches uk]. He was a little off on the time frame, obviously. It wasn't until 2001 that a bioengineer named Morris Benjaminson rolex replica and colleagues at New York's Touro College took chunks of fresh muscle tissue from a goldfish and immersed them in a vat of swiss replica watches liquid of fetal bovine serum. By doing that, the researchers found they could cause the still-living muscle cells to divide and produce more muscle cells; they were able to add about 14 percent worth of hublot replica flesh on the chunks. Benjaminson actually tried frying the fake fish in olive oil flavored with lemon, garlic and pepper and showed the result to colleagues, but nobody got up the nerve to actually try a bite [cartier replica].
