Please be aware, the B725 is closed at Brow Well bridge. If you are visiting from the Carlisle/Annan direction you have to come via Dumfries. The bridge has suffered severe damage due to recent flooding and may be closed for a significant amount of time.
It was lovely to see Blackcaps feeding on elderberries from the Back Pond hide this morning. Several raptors were seen from the Avenue Tower; a male Peregrine and a female Sparrowhawk were making the nearby Teal jumpy! Plenty of Tufted Duck and Shovelers are present on site and Black-tailed Godwit can be seen on the Folly Pond.
And of course the surrounding fields are still absolutely filled with Barnacle geese!
