Loirston Loch is just outside of Cove, Aberdeen, adjacent to Lochinch farm nature reserve. It hosts a variety of species of waterfowl and birds, e.g. mute and whooper swans, ducks, warblers. I routinely visit the nature reserve to observe and photograph the activity on the loch and will post images routinely during the coming year.

Above is an image of a mute swan taking off in the afternoon light.
