Another rarity has been spotted at Loch of Kinnordy. This time its the great white egret, Egretta alba. It was first spotted on the 1st of November and has been seen since from all the hides. We even had incredible views of it perched on top of the pine tree! If you go to try and see it don't forget to look out for the female Smew Mergellus albellus and the two bar-headed geese Anser indicus that have been showing up on the reserve.
