Threave Wildlife seen on nature reserve
Our wildfowl numbers will begin to increase over the coming months, the water levels have been high recently and the river has a fast flow today, so most birds were seen fro the hides on the reserve and lamb island hide.

Excellent views of Roe deer and the Historic Scotland staff informed us of good Otter watching on the river near the castle. Why not come and visit and enjoy a visit to Threave wetlands and look out for some of the amazing wildlife.
Please do let us know of your sightings at any of our countryside properties in Dumfries and Galloway.
