From huge predators prowling the skies, nimble grouse navigating heather-clad moorlands to cheerful songbirds nestling in tranquil woodland there are so many stunning species to spot throughout Scotland.

As the seasons change, so does the bird population. Migrant species flock to Scotland has a safe haven in the summer months. The coastal cliffs of Orkney are awash with thousands of seabirds in the summer creating vast bird cities.

The Galloway Kite Trail gives visitors the opportunity to spot the elusive red kite through some of Scotland's most impressive scenery.
