Happy New Year from Loch of Kinnordy.

I hope everyone enjoyed their festive period and were not too badly affected by the recent storms. The month of December was a relatively short month work wise and most of my time was spent repairing wind damage throughout the site. I did however get some good sighting s of our Bittern with short flights from one reed bed to another. I have also counted a few pintail on site, large numbers of teal and I’m still enjoying the occasional sighting of our resident Smew.

I am always interested in hearing about your sightings and seeing any photographs you have been lucky enough to take while at the Loch. I can be contacted through this blog or via my RSPB email address, Thomas.Pringle@rspb.org.uk
