There are over 50 miles of shoreline within the Inner Forth area, which means there are loads of places where you can find a whole range of wildlife that enjoys coastal habitats. These include rocky shores, sandy beaches, saltmarshes, mudflats and river banks. The Forth Estuary is internationally important for the thousands of wildfowl and waders, like pink-footed geese and curlew, that come here, and you can get great views from places like Torryburn, Bo'ness and Blackness. Grey seals sometimes make it all the way up the river as far as the Devon at Cambus, and even Stirling Old Bridge.
