The Nature of Britain Where You Live: Scotland - Freshwater Britain


The Loch Lomond National Nature Reserve is in the south east corner of the loch and is made up of the mouth of the river Endrick and the five nearest islands. It is a 'hotspot' for wildlife and has a huge diversity of habitats which supports an impressive range of species such as wintering wildfowl, summer breeding migrant birds, otters, and rare wetland plants. Easily accessible to anyone living in the central belt, it is a place where people can enjoy and learn about wildlife and also help with it's management. Volunteers are essential in actively helping to conserve and survey its wildlife, and as Hermione finds out, whether it's monitoring moths, surveying birds or pulling up Himalayan Balsam, there is something for everyone in Loch Lomond.
