Team visited Horse Island
The team at RSPB Lochwinnoch is not only responsible for the management of this wonderful reserve, but also for that of other, smaller reserves too, including Horse Island.
Welcome to the Lochwinnoch Nature Reserve
The reserve is home to many breeding birds with 48 breeding species in 2011, from lapwing to great spotted woodpecker. Whilst some birds are masters at hiding their nests and protecting their chicks, some are (to our enjoyment) much more comfortable in the limelight.
CRABS, the seaside snippers, one of Scotland's most loved shellfish and adored all over the world for its succulent white meat and flavoursome brown innards.
