The topic points the way to Scottish water themed events, music, accommodation, art, attractions, theatre, drinks and so much more. Wonderful coastal areas of Scotland will be highlighted in the media along with rivers, waterfalls, whisky, gin and beer. In fact, anything to do with Scottish water including over 37 000 lochs and lochans.
In addition, we have joined forces with a local ecologist and ornithologist from Aquila Ecology based in St Fillans village on Loch Earn. Aquila Ecology expertise includes bird-craft and wildlife tours, bat conservation, breeding raptor monitoring, international bird migration camps and moorland management.
Together we will host "Loch Earn Wildlife Watch" events. Three two hour, adult only, nature watch events will take place in Briar Cottages loch garden on 17th March, 12th July and 13th September 2020 starting at 10.30am.
Andrea told us, “I love what I do whether it's consultancy, surveys, training or leading local bird-craft walks and nature tours at home or further afield. We expect to see a variety of garden birds, bees and butterflies from the comfort of Briar Cottage’s lochside garden and summerhouse, though the icing on the cake will be spotting the Ospreys that glide over the loch hunting for fish from spring to September and Golden Eagles that soar over the mountains on both sides of Loch Earn.”
Ornithologist Terry Williams said “May is an excellent time for this event as Spring marks the return of many migrant birds that breed over the summer months - some returning to the same nest every year. Aquila Ecology’s base is in St Fillans on Loch Earn where we organise nature watching excursions all year round. We are also delighted to work with individuals and groups on bespoke nature tours and sessions.”
