The Watcher

October 2014 Edition

This month sees the winter visitors arrive en masse with Wildfowl, Sea-duck and Thrushes streaming in to spend the winter in warmer climes........

September 2014 Edition

September usually sees the first frosts of the season, though the cold mornings seem to have arrived earlier this year with several days below freezing already. Swifts are having a very late season, with birds still visiting a nest site in Grantown until the last week of August despite the cold nights.........

August 2014 Edition

 August, the last full month of summer sees the calm before the storm, with birds finished breeding and many preparing for long journeys in autumn. 

July 2014 Edition

Itís always pleasing in July to see the local bird populations swell with young birds; in the forest Crested Tit families can now be seen picking their way through the pines and other tit species are already forming feeding flocks......... 

June 2014 Edition

Summer is now in full swing in Strathspey, with birds making the most of the long daylight hours and busily feeding young everywhere you look. We have been seeing Lapwing and Curlew chicks on the farmland already as well as newly fledged Crested Tit broods in the forest.......
