The arrival of autumn and build up to winter allows us to see many different species of birds out on the Loch and on land. The woodlands around Ardenstur have a new arrival. The woodcock is largely nocturnal, spending most of the day in dense cover. Most of the woodcock in the UK are residents but a number travel here from Finland and Russia for the winter. The breeding population has been falling in recent years, perhaps because of less habitat as conifer plantations become too mature for woodcocks to find open enough breeding areas.You would be very lucky to see one, but you may inadvertently disturb one from its resting place near the pathways, look out for their impressive zigzagging flying between the trees before the find a place to drop back in to cover. 🥾🌲🦌 🦦 ⛰🦀 🛶#visitscotland #scottishholidays #wildlifeholidays #scottishbreaks #westcoastscotland #holidaycottages #travel #travelscotland #accommodation #sailingholiday #familyholiday #sailing #holidayhome #dogfriendly #selfcateringholiday #woodcock #getaway #scotland #bringaboat #autumnholiday#walking #dogwalking #mountainbiking #adventure #explore #explorescotland #coast #cycling #birdwatching
