Black Devon Wetlands is a mosaic of untouched wet grassland and wetland habitat including freshwater pools, brackish pools and reedbeds. The reserve is set back from the Inner Forth and forms an important area for large flocks of wintering wading birds and wildfowl.
Facilities on the reserve include a stunning and innovative viewing screen, perfectly placed for viewing wildlife on the freshwater pools, as well as paths, boardwalks and benches to enhance your visit to this hidden gem.
We are currently working on a range of interpretation or the site which should be in place within the next year.
Opening times – Open at all times
Entrance charges – None, though donations to help us continue our work here are very welcome.
If you are new to birdwatching…
Our habitat enhancement work has been designed to bring the birds to you, making Black Devon Wetlands ideal for new birdwatchers. In autumn and winter, the pools are home to many different ducks and flocks of songbirds can often be seen flitting across the reserve. In the spring, there are many species of breeding birds to keep an eye (and an ear!) out for.
Information for disabled visitors – Paths and gates on the site are suitable for wheelchair users but please be aware that there are some gates on the approach to the site which may not be.
