We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new volunteer Dr Robert Mill.
Robert has recently moved to Kinghorn from Edinburgh where he worked as a research botanist at the Royal Botanic Garden. Here he kept their wildlife records from 2004 until lockdown began in March last year, and from 2014-2020 he also posted a monthly wildlife report on the Botanic Stories website.
We are hoping that Robert's role at the Centre will be similar - recording the biodiversity (plants and wildlife) of the Loch, particularly the areas managed by TEC, and submitting monthly blog reports that we will be sharing on our website with you.
Robert has kindly created two reports so far - one for March and one for April. As Robert has been getting to know Kinghorn he has been exploring all the different areas and we thought it would be good to include his observations from the beach and coastal path too.
We are well and truly blessed in Kinghorn to have so much wildlife around us, which Robert has so eloquently pulled together and brought alive for us.
To read his blog you can find them here every month. We hope you enjoy reading them and if you are visiting Kinghorn Loch don't forget to share your pictures with us - tag us on social media and we would love it if you could share this to help spread the joy of nature.
Thank you to Robert for supporting the Centre.
