Staff at RSPB Loch Lomond have been hard at work improving the site to make it more accessible to visitors.
What's new at Loch Lomond
Shaping the land
Two new paths were completed in April 2017. They open up parts of the reserve that were previously inaccessible and one ends at a new viewpoint, featuring a viewing structure designed by a student from Strathclyde University, as part of the Scottish Scenic Routes initiative.
In September 2016, work was also completed on a project to replace two bridges – allowing for machinery and cattle to be moved around the reserve.
The team at the reserve are currently outlining a wetland management plan for a potential wetland creation project on site, and there are plans to make a pond dipping area, in order to increase the reserve's family offering.
This year 298 Greenland white-fronted geese were recorded, up on last year’s record of 251.
