  • Forum Thread: A walk round Broadwood Loch, Near Cumbernauld

  • Forum Thread: Carrot Beak Saga

    People might be interested in our nesting box solution for Oyster Catchers. We used to have a tarred felt roof covered with gravel, and this has been adopted by one or more pairs of Oyster Catchers for the past few years.

A really good way to check the distribution of birds is to use the animated map function on the Birdtrack website linked here . Well worth reporting...

  • Forum Thread: Help in spotting Scottish Eagles

    Hi all, I'm off to Scotland next month with some friends mainly to go walking/munro bagging but also I'm hoping I might see a Golden Eagle while I'm up amongst the mountains. We are staying near Glenelg (which is across the water from Skye) and was also wondering if anyone knows the likely...
