A guided walk to Loch Lee

Friends of Angus Herpetofauna will be hosting a guided walk to Loch Lee, Glen Esk, to watch and photograph adders and slowworms.

The walk will be held on Sunday, May 11, and is free and open to all with an interest in these fascinating animals. This is an excellent opportunity especially for those who have never seen an adder in the wild and wish to see and learn more about their ecology and habits.

The event begins at Invermark with a slow walk to the banks of Loch Lee for reptile searching, a picnic and relaxation. The return walk follows the same trail back to Invermark. The ecology and habits of reptiles described by the guide along the way. Species include adder, slowworm and common lizard; other species we may encounter include ring ouzel, cuckoo, osprey and peregrine falcon, as well as three amphibian species and variety of invertebrates.

This walk will commence at 10 a.m. from Invermark Public Car Park, situated in Glen Esk (Grid Ref - NO 446804). Participants should bring a packed lunch and stout footwear preferably with ankle protection. Places will be limited so booking is essential.
