A council that put up netting to stop sand martins nesting in cliffs has promised to take some of it down - after facing staunch criticism.
North Norfolk District Council put up the barrier on Bacton cliffs to encourage the birds to move further along the coast.
It needs to do work in that area to build up the beach and protect homes and the Bacton gas terminal from erosion.
But the move sparked serious concern from bird lovers and conservation groups including the RSPB.
The council insisted careful consideration had gone into the plans.
But today (Tuesday 9 April), it relented, agreeing to take down some of the netting.
