Birdwatch

Not many reports of rare birds recently but we see plenty of ducks geese and mute swans on the various lochs in the Ness area. Our resident golden eagles, however, are always active. Their flight path takes them along the valley of the Dell river, from their moorland habitat to their food larder on the machair land of the Atlantic coastline. The machair is overrun with rabbits and this provides the eagles with a plentiful supply of fresh, nutritious food all the year round. Anyone wishing to see golden eagles in flight has a good chance of doing so by parking in the Ness Hall car park, overlooking the Dell River. We are very privileged in this respect, as most people live their entire lives without ever catching a glimpse of this magnificent creature.
