It's wilder than you might think.

Recent Wildlife Sightings at Threave:

Recent Wildlife Sightings:

A rather impressive wildlife sighting for Dave Thompson one of our legendary full time rangers. At Kelton Hill wood he spotted an adult peregrine falcon and two juvenille on the 28th of July.

60 lapwing seen by myself at stepping stones hide.
Juvenille willow warbler and chiffchaff in all the hawthorn and small bushes along the path to the osprey platform.

Oyster catc...her mobbing the juvenille osprey was a great sight to behold. Really going for the newly fledged chicks at the nest site of the osprey. Think someone needs to tell them they only eat fish!

Plenty of wild raspberries around the reserve, so if you fancy some tasty free food, come along and pick some on the beautiful woodland side of the estate.
