Lots of new things to see and do!

The Centre has reopened!

Big success last Friday, the day when the Montrose Basin Visitor Centre did officially open to the public after the refit project was completed.

Many people came and enjoyed the new interpretation panels, the new touch screens, the new “call a curlew” activity, and of course, the wildlife that can be seen from the windows, not only with the naked eye but also with the powerful telescopes and binoculars.

We have been featured in the press many times in recent days – several newspaper articles, as well as appearing on STV news and BBC Radio Scotland “Out of doors” programme. For those who missed the radio interview, or would like to enjoy it again please use the following link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08ffzcg#playt=0xh35m54s

During the mid-term holidays many families came with their children to learn more about the Montrose Basin, its habitats and its wildlife, enjoying the spring-like weather. Indeed, in the last few days we had the first sights of a lively Yellowhammer!

If you haven’t been along to enjoy the Visitor Centre yet, don’t worry because we are already following summer opening hours: we’re open daily from 10.30am to 5pm and look forward to welcoming you soon!
