  • Blog Post: Who needs Autumnwatch?

    Autumnwatch was, as usual, a fantastic showcase for RSPB reserves and the work that we do but did you watch it? I didn’t, at least not live and the reason for that was that my wife and I decided to have a holiday that week and to take in the wildlife sights where I usually work. Not so much...
  • Blog Post: Icebergs at the Crook!

    What a beautiful day! A crisp blue sky, long fingers of frost on the grass and large mounds of ice over the lower reaches of the merse and chunks floating out to sea on the tide. I would never have believed it was cold enough last night for ice in the sea at midday but there it was glistening in the...

  • Blog Post: All eyes to the sky!

    It's with baited breath I walk into the visitor centre these days. Any day now an Osprey could land on the nest or be seen in the Bay.

  • Blog Post: Happy New Year everyone!

    Just wanted to extend our best wishes to everyone for a happy and healthy 2013. The next guided walk at the Crook of Baldoon is on Sunday 13th January - a perfect reason to walk off some of the Christmas excess and see what's around at the busiest time of year for wildfowl on the Crook. Peak numbners...
  • Blog Post: All eyes to the sky!! Spring is here!

    It's with baited breath that I go into the Visitor Centre these days. Any day now an osprey could appear on the nest. Already there has been an osprey sighted at Annan. Could this be the Caerlaverock birds returning? We will just have to wait and see. 3 other opsreys have been seen further south...
