Wildlife watching on the South Esk- Catchment Consultation now open

We want you to tell us about your favourite wildlife watching spots in the South Esk. From established visitor sites to “Hidden Gems” we’d like to know.

The newly-launched South Esk  catchment consultation allows you to tell us about your favourite wildlife hotspots and view points. We also want to know if you walk or cycle to any of the sites where you watch wildlife. Do you visit one site on route to another? We’d like to know.

The information gathered in this consultation will be used by the River South Esk Catchment Partnership to understand how residents and visitors in the catchment enjoy wildlife and how sustainable travel can be made easier. Click here for more info or contact info@riversouthesk.org
