Time running out for 2011 Goosewatch at Strathbeg

As winter sets in many of us are filling the freezer, ensuring the wood pile is stocked and resetting our watches.

But not the birds at RSPB Loch of Strathbeg! The clocks going back doesn’t make any difference to them, it’s still early morning starts for a hard day’s feeding, but none of the birds at the loch make as much of a spectacle of this daily ritual as the Pink-footed Geese.

Over the past two months the Pink-footed Geese have been migrating from Greenland and Iceland where they spent the summer breeding.

RSPB Scotland have been running regular dawn and dusk Goosewatches so visitors can see the goose spectacle for themselves, but now this event is drawing to a close and with only four more opportunities to book a place for Goosewatch, time is running out!

The final remaining Goosewatch is tomorrow (Wednesday)at 6:30am and Saturday, November 12 at 6:30am.

Booking is essential so contact RSPB Loch of Strathbeg on 01346 532234 or strathbeg@rspb.org.uk
