Udale Bay

Nature Reserve in Easter Ross & Black Isle

Udale Bay

This peaceful intertidal bay on the Black Isle is winter home to thousands of waders, ducks and geese. In the autumn, great flocks of migrating widgeon – as many as 5000 at a time – gather in the bay to feed on abundant eelgrass. Ospreys are frequently seen during the summer, fishing in the bay. Other species include: redshank, oystercatcher, curlew, shelduck and pink-footed geese. The viewing hide at Udale Bay enables you to get good views of the birds and provides information. The best time to visit is two to three hours either side of high tide.
