Winter wonderland walks

Take a guided walk at the RSPB Loch of Kinnordy nature reserve this December and discover more about the wildlife and history of this unique location.

Pop along and discover more about the fantastic wildlife found at Loch of Kinnordy, from woodpeckers to roe deer, otters to red squirrels.

This December, RSPB site warden at Loch of Kinnordy, Kim Ross, is running two guided walks for visitors to come along and find out more about the wetland habitat.

The walks will focus on the seasonal changes at the nature reserve, the evolution of the Loch of Kinnordy, the history of the site – including looking at an ancient crannog and a question and answer session at the end.

Kim commented: “This is a great opportunity for people of any age to learn more about Loch of Kinnordy.

“There’s something for everyone and we look forward to welcoming visitors to the nature reserve to take part in the walks.”

For anyone who fancies trying their hand at making their own bird feeders, staff and volunteers will help visitors to make their own fat balls at the end of the walk.

These can be taken home and used to encourage birds to visit their gardens and to supplement the bird’s food supply during the harsh winter months.

The guided walks will take place on Sunday, December 11 and Tuesday, December 27, both starting at 12 noon.

The guided walks are free to free RSPB members and £3 for adult non-members, £1 for children non-members Loch of Kinnordy is located one mile outside Kirriemuir. The reserve is open daily from dawn to dusk.

RSPB Scotland’s work at Loch of Kinnordy is supported by Scottish Natural Heritage. Individual projects have been funded by Angus Environmental Trust.
