Montrose Basin visitor centre and wildlife reserve

Montrose Basin is an enclosed estuary of the South Esk and covers 750 hectares. A daily tidal cycle brings in a rich soup of nutrients that attracts over 50,000 migratory birds each year.
High-powered telescopes in the wildlife centre provide magnificent opportunities to view wildlife. Three television cameras bring the wildlife literally into the centre.
The reserve attracts pink-footed geese from Iceland and Greenland, common eels swimming across the Atlantic from the Sargasso Sea, knots on their way from Siberia to West Africa, salmon travelling thousands of miles from Arctic Canada and Greenland and sedge warblers which return to the Basin in late spring after wintering in West Africa.
