KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - World War I Centenary -

1 The car park has a num­ber of Bud­dleia bushes, so worth look­ing for but­ter­flies and bees here in late sum­mer be­fore mak­ing the climb into the oak woods.

2 Best to stop and scan when us­ing the foot­path as the many steps make look­ing be­fore you step haz­ardous. Lis­ten out for songs in spring, with plenty of chances of some fine wood­land birds.

3 Open ar­eas give you the chance to scan for moun­tain birds, as well, with mi­grants found in the birch wood­land around you.

4 Check the many bogs for signs of drag­on­flies with some real north­ern crack­ers here for you to find. Look for signs of deer around you, as well as the tell-tale drop­pings of Pine Marten.

5 Drop back onto the road for your re­turn, lis­ten­ing for traf­fic, not birds! Scan the loch for Ot­ters, ea­gles, herons, ducks and waders.
