Flight of fancy

We have only just caught up with one of the best April Fool's stories. Apparently on 1 April all the team working on the Marks Barfield Treetop Walk at Kew Gardens received an email from their contact at Kew, saying all work would have to stop.

The reason? Peregrine falcons had nested in one of the artificial 'trees' of the structure, and could not be disturbed until the breeding season was complete.
