Merkinch LNR Inverness

For the answer to the last quiz, the tail belonged to a Long tailed Tit, I've never noticed this pattern before even when they were in the hand, but that was a few years ago. Cracking wee birdies.

Took a trip to Merkinch LNR in Inverness as a recce to start some Birdwatching for Beginners workshops in Inverness.

Very impressed with this small reserve and can see great potential for some very interesting birds, all surrounded by scenery that is just outstanding.

Two interesting tidal pools at Canal end of Reserve

Looking forward to see if the April advertising in "highland Life" magazine pays off and I can get some workshops started here, perfect for classes with a good range of habitat and birds.
