Cormorant nesting colony, Castle Loch
Cormorant nesting colony, Castle Loch
Castle Loch and neighbouring Mochrum Loch between them have the largest freshwater breeding colony of cormorants in Scotland, known to have existed since at least 1663. This year there appear to be increased numbers of birds nesting in these colonies and there are several rocky islets occupied in each of the two lochs, of which this is the biggest. The occupied islands are almost completely bare of vegetation.
