Redshank, Curlew and Lapwing

The Feith Musach is a wetland area, just north of Tomintoul, that is home to many waders during the nesting season.

Curlew, Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Redshank and Snipe all nest here. They can often be seen browsing in the meadows opposite the Peat Moss, within a few feet of the main road through Glenlivet.

Short Eared Owl may also be spotted quartering the ground for their prey.
