A visual melting pot of swirling blues and greys, the mudflats and saltmarsh of Caerlaverock provide a winter feast for birds like barnacle geese, bar-tailed godwit and knot. Standing on the edge of this vast flat expanse, you can watch flocks of birds wheeling through the sky as they travel from mudflat to coastal salt marsh. Or arrive at dusk in early summer to listen to the eerie chorus of natterjack toads.
You can visit Caerlaverock all year round. There is a path network with raised boardwalks, a viewing platform, picnic areas, cycle racks and a viewing hide. The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Centre is also located adjacent to the National Nature Reserve.
