Update. Darlton Quarry, South Wall. There are housemartin nests being constructed on the routes Teen Dream and the Beast of Darlton (both just under the overlaps) so these routes should be avoided. There are a number of nests further right of the climbing too. This is a new colony as far as I can tell. There are no signs of raptor nests anywhere near the climbing areas.
