Wildlife seekers may see moorhens, herons, dippers and swans. Additionally, hedgehogs, mice, foxes and many more mammals are known to visit the Trottick Ponds.

Convener of Neighbourhood Services Committee, Councillor Anne Rendall, said: β€œFamilies have a great opportunity to take in one of Dundee’s unique natural assets.

β€œThe Trottick Ponds offer an interesting and varied range of wildlife. This Countryside Ranger event is a fantastic chance to experience another side of Dundee.”

The event will begin at 1:30pm and last two hours. A small fee of Β£3 per child will be charged for attendance.
