Peregrine Falcons at the Falls of Clyde

For over a decade now, the steep gorges leading between the Falls of Clyde have been home to a breeding pair of Peregrine Falcons. So precious are these birds that round the clock CCTV is in place to protect them, albeit their precarious cliff edge ensure maximum difficulty for those that would do them harm! The position of the nest on one side of the gorge and the RSPB hide on the other, means that you can get closer to these peregrines than any other site in the UK. Best times to visit April – June during nest building and chick rearing.

RSPB Baron’s Haugh

The former steel town of Motherwell is the last place you would expect to find an RSPB nature reserve, but here, in the marshland around the River Clyde, is a terrific site. Over 170 different species of bird have been recorded on this site, some regular local species, others just stopping on their way to somewhere more exotic. Open all year round
