3. Hogganfield Park LNR – wildfowl feeding

Sadly, we have been unable to carry out any wildfowl feeding at Hogganfield Loch in recent weeks because of adverse weather forecasts. We can advise that a few Whooper Swans are back on the loch having travelled from their breeding grounds in Iceland.

So, hopefully we shall get a break in the weather and be able to host a feeding event in the near future – keep an eye on our facebook page for up-to-date information.

4. Cathkin Braes LNR Day

We attended yesterday’s (9 September 2017) event organised by Glasgow City Council Countryside Rangers. We shared our gazebo with Butterfly Conservation, bagged some litter and saw Red Admirals, Small Whites, a couple of Buzzards, a Sparrowhawk, a flock of Linnets and a nice range of woodland birds.

5. New Leaflet Published

We have prepared a new leaflet that provides basic information about Hogganfield Park LNR and some of the waterbirds to be found there.

6. Thank You – Hogganfield Park LNR – Saturday 12 August 2017

Thanks to everyone that popped along to the City Council’s ‘Family Day’ event at Hogganfield Park LNR last Saturday and helped us feed the wildfowl. We also did a wee bit of litter picking in and around the car park area ……
