Let the Loch of the Lowes 2023 Season Begin!
From (yesterday) Wednesday, 1st March, Loch of the Lowes Visitor Centre will be open everyday from 10.30am to 5pm.
Traditionally, March is the month our ospreys return to their nest in the sturdy scots pine beside Lowes. Last year, LM12 (our resident male) flew in on 13th March, followed on 23rd March by his mate since 2020, ringed NC0. When will they arrive this year? Eyes to the skies everyone, this is a wonderful month to spot birds making their way to breeding grounds. Whether they have been over-wintering and are leaving us to head north or east, like redwings or geese, or our summer visitors, like osprey, flying up from warmer climes.
What’s more, to kick off the season in style, we have joined with Birnam Arts to present a fabulous event: Tom Bowser ‘Red Kites, Beavers and Rewilding’.
Tom is a journalist, nature writer (author of A Sky Full of Kites) and public speaker, so we’re in for a treat.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to visit Argaty Red Kites, near Doune, you’ll know what an amazing site Tom Bowser has created for viewing these acrobatic birds. If you haven’t been there yet, put it on your wish list! Now, he’s taking his family farm even further with an ambitious rewilding project, including the introduction of beavers.
Book Tickets here to discover the hard work, imagination and sheer perseverance behind this project.
We hope you have a wonderful Spring and look forward to seeing you at Loch of the Lowes in the coming months
