Bird Watching (UK) - - Go Birding -

1 Use the ap­proach road to check for geese, swans and waders. Scan the posts for perched rap­tors.

2 This re­serve is a great ad­di­tion to the area’s grow­ing bird list, with new scrapes left and right of the car park so check out the breed­ing waders, duck and wag­tails.

3 A flood bank pro­tects the area from Wig­town Bay flood­ing so try walk­ing

north to­wards the River Blad­noch to check for hunt­ing har­ri­ers and owls in win­ter.

4 Walk the flood bank south to look for sim­i­lar birds, check­ing out the pip­its for any­thing un­usual and keep an eye out for Os­prey in sum­mer.

5 Scan the marsh for geese in win­ter and fur­ther out in the bay for tidal move­ment of sea ducks and seals.
