Whether you are spending time in Angus or travelling down to Fife, there are plenty of things to see and do this weekend.
Saturday 6th September – Montrose Basin Visitor Centre is taking part in the Angus Open Doors Day event. You can come and spend the day watching the birds out on the Basin from our wonderful panoramic Visitor Centre window. There is also lots for the children to do in our kids corner, packed full of quizzes, games and interactives.
On this day entry is FREE for all ages!
For anyone that would like to get involved in an exciting weekend of recording wildlife. Head down to the Botanic Gardens in St Andrews, Fife.
From Friday at 19:30 you can watch Duncan Davidson (East Scotland Butterfly recorder) set up the Moth trap for the night. A return visit to the moth trap on Saturday morning, should reveal the nights work, with expert help in the identification of the moths found.
At 20:00 (Friday) there is a guided walk with Les Hatton (An active member of Bat Conservation Trust). His boundless bat knowledge and enthusiasm will help you to understand the wonderful world of the bats.
However, if bats are not your thing then why not go pond dipping in the dark with Nikki MacDonald at 21:30.
