Its now a case of patience to see what birds will "tern up" and hopefully use it............. Mary Legg

Update 11 March 2002
The location mentioned for the rafts is the pool near St johns and not the loch itself.

Raft building that took place on Saturday.  This was  Earthwatch project and was also supported by S.N.H and the local Scottish Ornithologists club.

We had 9 volunteers to help altogether of all ages. Despite the awful weather the group worked on.  We plan to launch the rafts on Saturday 22nd March so anyone who wishes to help would be welcome.  (waders would be useful)
