Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve
Wigtown Bay Local Nature Reserve is the largest LNR in Britain.
The estuary, with large areas of salt marsh and mudflats is vitally important for many of the species that live there, especially for salt tolerant plants and wintering wildfowl.
The reserve is a popular venue for a range of recreational activities including angling and bird watching. Many species are to be seen including thousands of wild geese wintering on the salt marshes.
