Wildlife

Blue tits and great tits regularly nest in our bird boxes throughout the park and look carefully for dippers and wagtails flying low along Annaty Burn. Wrens and blackbirds are frequent visitors and can be  seen nesting in the shrubs and undergrowth.

Watch out for the unmistakable sound of the Great Spotted Woodpecker drumming on Scots Pines and the raucous shouts of jays in the canopy above you. A variety of bumblebee species can be seen along Quarrymill’s paths in the summer months. Butterflies are also common in summer, while moths visit towards the spring and autumn.
