The Watcher

August 2015 Edition

August can actually be a frenetic time for bird activity, especially in the north with birds feeding up for the coming migration and plenty of active young on the wing...........

July 2015 Edition

Despite a rather wet and cold June, there still seems to be plenty of newly fledged young birds around the forests and wader chicks in the fields, and the first juvenile Sandwich Terns are already being seen along the Moray Firth. 

June 2015 Edition

Mid-summer in the Highlands, and with over 18 hours daylight there is plenty of opportunity for wildlife watching with the long evenings, remember sunset will be after 10pm by mid-month and barely dark even by 11.30pm! 

May 2015 Edition

With Daffodils often still in bloom, May sees spring peak in the Highlands with a sudden rush of vibrant green as the birches and larch finally spread their leaves. Waders will already have their first brood, defending their territory aggressively to any passing predator or birdwatcher. 

April 2015 Edition

With the clocks now pushed forward and rapidly lengthening days, spring is truly in the Highland air. The first returning Ospreys are busy repairing nests, Divers and Slavonian Grebes are now back on their breeding lochs and waders have returned the farmland and moors.........
