KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1

Park in the small car park by the track just off the road. Scan the rough veg­e­ta­tion around Loch Gorm for har­ri­ers.

2

Walk up the track check­ing the var­i­ous pools for waders. In win­ter, geese are ev­ery­where and fly a short dis­tance from you. Look out for Mer­lin along the fence lines.

3

Look for Green­land White-fronted Geese among the many Bar­na­cle Geese.

4

Look out for ar­eas of crop­ping used by Twite in win­ter and Corn Crakes in sum­mer.

5

Check the rocky ground for hunt­ing rap­tors, with both Pere­grine and Golden Ea­gle likely in the area.

6

Walk back to­wards the start. A coastal walk is made hard by many fences, but if you know the tide times (and please do check them care­fully) you could walk back by the beach.
