At the risk of sounding insensitive, what on earth do you mean that
"people are unhappy about the tides"? Surely birds have learnt to deal
with the rising tide over the past few years. Darwin's theory should
sort out any birds caught out by the tides, which occur at this time
every year. Blaming Climate Change won't help either, as so far I
think sea level has only risen by a couple of centimetres.
