I am constantly seeing people on social media saying that flying over a SSSI (site of special scientific interest) is illegal.
However I have yet to see any legislation to say that it is.
Is it illegal?
Yes there may be birds nesting on SSSIs at certain times of the year - but then they also cover areas of special interest by virtue of its fauna, flora, geological or physiographical / geomorphological features.
Or is it poor generalisation of Drone Police?
