The Watcher

November 2014 Edition

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

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

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.........
