Members of the Fife Scottish Wildlife Trust will be holding a guided walk at the Barnyards Marsh in Kilconquhar later this month.

The walk will take place on Sunday, June 28 from 2.00 to 3.30 p.m.

Participants will be able to see different species of wildflowers and sedges of various kinds, and rarer plants such as the Northern Marsh Orchid. Over 90 different species of plant have been identified in the area.

Reed buntings and sedge warblers can also be seen in the summer. There is a boardwalk in part of the marsh with dry access but suitable footwear is recommended.

The Beautiful Kilconquhar Group donated some of the boardwalk and a wooden seat to allow a short rest and view of the marsh. On the day, the group will serve Strawberry Cream Teas between 2.00 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. in Kilconquhar Church Hall.

There will be old photographs of the village on display as well as the opportunity to view the church. People are encouraged to visit the marsh before or after the Teas on June 28. Participants taking part in the guided walk should meet at the entrance, beside the car park, opposite the Kinneuchar Inn.
