The Watcher

June 2018 Edition

There are certainly plenty of hours daylight for wildlife watching at this time of year, with plenty of light until well after 10.30pm by mid-month.  You can head out again after dinner to one of our local wildlife spots if youíre not too tired after a day out in the field.....

May 2018 Edition

At last, spring well and truly reaches the Highlands this month with long days and a big push of summer migrants especially during the first two weeks. The woods will be full of the songs of Willow Warblers, Tree Pipits and Redstart while many resident species are already busy feeding young. 

April 2018 Edition

Finally, spring is starting to get well underway in the Highlands with the first local Ospreys already at their nests, Divers and Slavonian Grebes back on the breeding lochs and the air full of the sound of breeding waders on the moors and farmland. The iconic song of the Willow Warbler will soon be filling every corner.

March 2018 Edition

Officially itís now spring at last, though winter can still hold a tight grip in the Highlands throughout March, the days are longer and you may even feel a little warmth in that sun! Many resident species will have begun preparing to breed, waders returning to the moors, Dippers singing along the rivers and Eagles already down on their nests. 

February 2018 Edition

Spring still seems a long way away in the Highlands, however by February we are already seeing the first small signs of change. Dippers singing along the rivers, taking up their territories and in the Pinewoods Crossbills may well already be nesting.......
