Join Andrew Bielinski, renowned bird expert and manager of South of Scotland RSPB, for a walk around the breathtaking Crook of Baldoon reserve. With a backdrop to wild Saltmarsh and mudflats, it is home to a thriving birdlife, from Barnacle Geese, Shelducks, Whooper and Mute Swans. We will also be joined by Nick Coombey of the Solway First Partnership who will share his knowledge about the coast. This will be a perfect place to consider our relationship with the coast and marine environment.
As part of the ambitious Solway Coast and Marine Project (SCAMP) we would love to explore how we as local people and businesses, could benefit from investment in ‘natural capital’.. the unique species, habitats, sea and landscape along the Solway.
Future Visions Playtime
We will meet for the walk outside the County Buildings in Wigtown and travel together to the nature reserve. After the walk it is back indoors for a hot soup and a heat up; where we will talk, dream and share ideas about future options for our coast and marine environment.
What we’ll talk about:
Please join us. Have your say. Shape the future.
