Bonnington to Victoria Bridge


Natalie Harmsworth (TWIC)


Wednesday, 1 August, 2018 - 17:30

Site details: Urban section of the Water of Leith between Bonnington Bridge and Victoria Bridge in the north of the city of Edinburgh.

Leader: Natalie Harmsworth, email: natalie@wildlifeinformation.co.uk, tel: 07833019493

Aim: To record the riverside wildlife species present following the flood prevention works to enable the assessment of the site as a Local Biodiversity Site. The emphasis of this outing will be on plant recording, but all records will be useful for the site assessment. There are previous records of Otter for this section of the Water of Leith, but no records of fish nor bat (to species level).

Meet: Meet at 5:30 pm by the entrance to the Water of Leith walkway at Bonnington Bridge, Newhaven Road on the north side of the river (grid ref. NT259760, postcode EH6 5QQ).

Requirements: Suitable outdoor footwear and clothing and waterproofs (weather depending). Money for fish and chips afterwards at Leith! We plan to finish by 8:30 pm at the latest.

Note this isn't a circular route.
