Thames - Bankside

This part of the river from Southwark Bridge to Blackfriars Bridge. Main areas include the Tate Modern, site of the Peregrine Falcons, and the Millenium Footbridge. Plenty of shrubs and trees around the back of the Tate has shown nesting passerines and although very disturbed by people walking around the area has great potential.
