Stroll down a shell-white beach, marvel at the summer colour as the flowers bloom along the sand dunes, and keep your eyes peeled for the most elusive of birds. You'll probably hear the corncrake's distinctive rasping call between May and July – but will you see one? If you don't, there are still plenty of lapwings and redshanks to watch, not to mention large flocks of geese in the winter.
Open at all times. Please avoid walking through fields of hay and crops. Information bothy and corncrake viewing bench at Totronald.
Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
This nature reserve is important for wildlife. RSPB Scotland welcomes responsible access, in line with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. During the ground-nesting bird breeding season (1 April to 15 August) we request that you keep your dog close to you, preferably on a short lead, clean up after your dog and that you keep to the paths.
