Caverlock WWT





















What does WWT stand for? Wild and Wet? We traveled to Dumfries & Galloway on Saturday, all the way in glorious sunshine, the whole journey through the North Pennines was fantastic. The last 30 miles though turned to rain and it was heavy rain on Saturday throughout our visit to this reserve.

Great day though, really enjoyed the visit. We traveled to see the Baranacle Geese and there was good numbers grazing on the meadows, I think the estimate was 7,000+, a little distant but great to see.

The Whooper Swans are pictured through the glass of the hide where they feed them twice daily, not great pictures, the best I could do in the conditions on the day. The Widgeon was also taken through the windows.
