The area around Carden Holiday Cottages is lucky enough to benefit from a number of splendid rivers including the Spey and of course, the river Findhorn which in themselves are fed by a wide range of streams and tributaries. A walk along the river bank can be a real treat as Dippers, Wagtails, Common Sandpiper and Gooseganders inhabit the areas.
The Moray coastline itself may be famous for its seal colonies and dolphins, but it also boasts a wide range of equally spectacular seabirds including Fulmars, Razorbills, Shags and Black Guillemots. Watch out for the winter waders too as the beaches and tidal areas provide habitat for many birds including the Purple Sandpiper.
There is a great organisation here in Moray that is definitely worth a visit to their site. It’s packed with information, articles and great photographs. Check out Birds in Moray to see the wide range of birds you are likely to see.
