It has been too long since my last visit to the RSPB nature reserve at Lochwinnoch. The staff are very friendly and helpful, as are the visitors I spoke to in the photo hide.
Within a short space of time I had seen at least a dozen species of birds, some of which were too quick or distant to be captured by my camera.
I have promised myself a return visit shortly.
