Loch Lomond dragon spotting day

Nature detectives are invited to try and spot dragonflies as well as other wildlife, with a bit of expert help, on a guided walk searching for wildlife clues at Loch Lomond National Nature Reserve on Sunday 3 July.

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) reserve staff will help people on the walk spot a variety of birds, dragonflies and other insects and plants, as well as touching on the cultural history of the Endrick Mouth area.

Tim Jacobs, SNH’s Loch Lomond reserve manager, said: “We hope that people will join us for this fun look at the reserve. This is an opportunity to find out more about this interesting and wildlife rich part of the Loch Lomond National Nature Reserve and to ask as many questions as you want. Walks often book up fast so if you want to come, give us a phone.

“Please bring your own lunch and drinks, as well as sturdy footwear and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions, including water proofs. There will be a walk of approximately four to five miles, so a reasonable level of physical fitness is needed.”

The Summer Seasonal Walk with reserve staff at Loch Lomond reserve on Sunday 3 July will be starting at 11am from the village of Gartocharn and will be finishing at about 4pm. There will also be a pick up and drop off at Balloch station. Although free, booking is essential by emailing STIRLINGNNRS@snh.gov.uk for a place. Call Stephen Longster or Tim Jacobs at SNH on 01786 450362 for further information.
