Birding walk

Kevin Duffy will lead a walk along Braeleny Road in Callander up to Arivurichardich reservoir, to look for birds and whatever wildlife crosses our path. The area is home to black grouse, red kites & buzzards plus moorland & meadow species. There are nesting sites for both house and sand martins that should allow close viewing. ~8km return on good track and easy to return at any point.
