Mersehead RSPB reserve
Our next day out while we were staying in Dumfries and Galloway was to Mersehead, an RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) reserve on the Solway coast. Like Caerlaverock (which I blogged about yesterday) it is a great place to see geese in the winter. It's also a great place for seeing smaller birds too, I remember the first time I visited in particular, the hedges all seemed to be packed full of songbirds.
The RSPB information centre on the reserve is small but welcoming
spotted flycatcher, but it didn't want to look at the camera so we couldn't get a photo).
there's a beautifully decorated bird hide
There is a wonderful coastal walk
Mersehead is always a lovely place to visit, plenty to see and wonderful walks even if there aren't lots of birds around.
