Bird Watching in Moray, Badenoch and Strathspey
The presence of bird life in an area is greatly influenced by the type of landscape it contains. In the case of the lands along the River Spey and the Moray coast we have just about everything from the freezing arctic conditions of the high Cairngorm plateau to the relatively balmy shores of the Moray Firth. This variety of landscapes produces a corresponding variety of habitats, and this explains the rich and varied selection of birds that live in the area.
