The Cambus Pools management agreement between the owners Diageo and the Scottish Wildlife Trust has come to an end. While discussions are ongoing, in the absence of a new agreement the Trust has been unable to undertake conservation work on the site.
Cambus Pools is a wetland reserve with reedbeds, grassland and open water attracting waders, warblers and wildfowl. The reserve is located behind an industrial area on the Inner Forth estuary and demonstrates how small areas of land can become vital habitats for wildlife, such as reed buntings.
