Enjoy Spring at Loch Vaa
On Thursday 8 May The Highland Council Countryside Rangers will be leading a guided walk to explore Loch Vaa during the spring migration, a little known loch between Aviemore and Carrbridge surrounded by wonderful birch and pine woodlands.
Why not come along and hopefully see wood ants in action, birds on the move and perhaps some signs of mammals and reptiles too?
Ranger Saranne Bish says “This loch can be fabulous at any time of the year but especially as the world wakes up to the sunshine of spring, we might get a fishing osprey or a sighting of a hobby. Who knows what we’ll find, but it’ll be fun exploring.”
The walk takes place from 11am to 2pm and costs £5 for adults and £3 for children and concessions. Anyone coming along should bring walking boots, waterproofs, water and a packed lunch and all children must be accompanied by an adult. The meeting up point at 11am is at the Laggantygown Cemetery Car Park between Aviemore and Carrbridge. For further details give Saranne a call on 01479 873 914.
The Countryside Rangers run many events and guided walks which aim to help raise awareness and encourage appreciation of the scenery, wildlife and heritage of the Highlands. A programme of Ranger Guided Walks and Events is on the council’s website.
