Gales Herald Clock Change

Weather forecast for the coming days is strong winds and rain, add the clocks going back an hour and we have the most depressing time of year about to start.

The River birds have been stocking up on quality food provided daily by the River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust

They are about to be joined by another 8 ducklings on Monday, reared since incubation 8 weeks ago.

It appears our last beautiful white duck must have been taken by a predator since I have not seen her since spring.

I had hoped she might have produced some offspring like herself, but this was not to be, If she was alive I am pretty sure she would have returned to the river by now. However we now have about 140 ducks on the river and they will stay on the lower reaches until long as there is food available!

Meanwhile the  4 Royal Pigeon Squabs are continuing to survive and grow.
