Heather has been working with Grandtully Primary School on a camera trap project with Scottish Natural Heritage. The children had the camera trap in their school grounds and up at Dun Coillich. The film they made for the project was chosen as one of the winning entrys in the video competition run by SNH. Their prize is a shiny new camera trap for the school to keep! Here is the link here to their final video entry: https://youtu.be/i8vQzPjlnuo.
Such a pleasure working with the school - such enthusiastic pupils and supportive staff - and a really great project to be a involved with. Looking forward to helping them use their new trap up at Dun Coillich.
Very well done to all involved!
Tim Fison and Richard Paul walked the Dùn Coillich Butterfly Transect today. The species of butterflies encountered were - Green Veined Whites, Green Hairstreak and Orange Tip (both males and females seen). A number of moth caterpillars were seen as well and the identification of these awaits a statement from Butterfly Conservation.
We had another great day up the hill today, this time with the P6/7 class from Kenmore primary. They worked hard putting tree tubes on the trees they planted earlier in the spring and then had great fun pond dipping in the 'scrapes' in the afternoon. It was great to have such an engaged class so keen to learn, even the rain did nothing to dampen their enthusiasm!
