Mountainview Nature Reserve Species List

The Highland Titles Nature Reserve at Mountainview (previously Bumblebee Haven), comprises mainly grassland and the woodland with an extensive riparian margin. Not included are the fish in Loch Loyne, which will be the subject of a later survey, or invertebrates, which will be assessed in spring 2017.

If you have reliably seen other species during your visit, please let us know what you saw, when you saw it and roughly where you saw it. Thank you.
