Findhorn Bay is an enclosed estuary giving shelter to people and wildlife. The Bay is nationally important for birds with significant numbers of migrant wildfowl and waders. It is also important for water sports and as a tourist destination. Established in 1998 the Local Nature Reserve is managed by local people in partnership with Moray Council and Scottish Natural Heritage.
In this website, there is information on the birds, flora, butterflies and animals in the reserve which will help you to maximise your visit to Findhorn. For the 2017/2018 season new regulations for wildfowling will be trialled.
