Black Grouse Leks:  An Important  Message Received from The RSPB

“There is a black grouse lek close to Milngavie and Bearsden. In previous years we [the RSPB] have been concerned by the number of photographers approaching and even camping on the lek site and indeed, we believe this may be one of the reasons the birds have been absent from it for the past couple of years. The birds seem to be using the site again and we are really keen to ensure that they remain undisturbed.”

This view has been endorsed by 2 very experienced nature photographers in our club, John and Neil. Members should speak to either of these photographers if they have further questions. Club members and those living in the Greater Glasgow Area are asked to abide by this advice.

As part  of our Code of Conduct, Milngavie and Bearsden Camera Club endorses the  Nature Photographers’ Code of Practice published by the RSPB (a copy is available here at the Cornwall Bird Watching and Preservation SocietyWe ask all nature photographers to remember the guiding idea of The Code that “The welfare of the subject is more  important than the photograph.”
