The Isle of Cumbrae has always been a family friendly destination, even for wildlife.

A cute oystercatcher chick roaming the beach in Millport with his mother has captured the hearts on social media.

There are a number of nesting areas on the Isle of Cumbare, while one oystercatcher has even set up a nest in a plant box area at Fairlie Quay marina.

The pictures in Millport were taken by Eddie Williams and posted up on the Millport Photos facebook page.

* Being nursed back to health after having been found injured near a local roadway was this young deer. Hessilhead Wildlife Reserve Centre are currently looking after him, and hopefully his stay won't be too long.

* There was much anger expressed on social media Facebook pages over a young photographer appearing to get too close to the nesting swans at Aubery recently.

Concerned members of the community have helped gain signs to warn walkers and dog-owners of nesting swans to the north side of Largs.

Signs were erected at both ends of Aubery alerting visitors to the area to be mindful of the swan on the shore, close to the pedestrian walkway.

If you suspect that one or both of the swans is injured or there is a serious problem at the nest site, please contact the SSPCA on 03000 999 999.

* Can you tell the Lesser Black-backed gull from the Greater? If not then join Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park for ‘Gallivanting with Gulls’. It’s a free guided walk to help improve your gull and other bird ID skills.
