Work is taking place to create a meander on the Dundonald Burn from Monday 28 October until Tuesday 31 December 2019. The grass path beside the burn is closed until further notice. Please follow any signs.
With its woodland, grassland and wetland areas, this reserve hosts small mammals, amphibians and songbirds, which attract birds of prey and other predators. A network of water-filled channels and two large ponds provide an ideal habitat for amphibians, dragonflies and damselflies.
