Mallard ducks

Kinneil Nature Reserve is part of the Firth of Forth Special Protected Area. The area is internationally important for breeding and overwintering birds. Look out for:

Native tree species like alder, willow, Scots Pine and birch have been planted over the site – as they are toilerant of poor soils and the harsh, coastal conditions. Bramble and sea-buckthorn have also been established. The meadow areas are also being encouraged and managed.
