We are in the process of developing detailed proposals for RSPB Scotland Insh Marshes, which will include several physical measures aimed at restoring the floodplain and increasing the ecological value of the area.
In 2020, we put forward a range of options for public consultation. Subsequently, we have been working with experts to develop our proposals, including the identification of specific sites where we will bring forward our proposals.
These proposals are at the following locations:
These proposals will:
Block ditches at Invertromie Compartment to help maintain wetland species and habitats. This will also protect the underlying peat which, in turn, can more effectively soak up carbon from the atmosphere.
Remove bank protection that currently constricts the river channels of the Spey and the Tromie, thereby allowing the water carried by these rivers to move more freely.
When available, more information about these proposals will be shared with local communities and stakeholders in Summer 2023.
