Highland Wild Encounters - Fiadh-bheatha sa
"Last year visitors were treated to great views of Badgers and Otters. The Black Grouse performed their amazing courtship display and some lucky people spent ages watching Ospreys bringing in sticks for their nest. Puffins, as always, charmed their audience and there were good sightings of a Minke Whale and several Harbour Porpoises.
"This year we hope to hear Corncrakes, maybe view some Hen Harriers and even try a hand at Electro-fishing for Eels. There will be a cruise to the Island of Hoy and an evening full of Bats. It should be a fortnight to remember."
A programme of Highland Wild Encounters events is available on the internet at www.highlandwildencounters.com or contact Andy Summers for further details, telephone: 01571 844 654 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the events need to be booked in advance. Most of the events are free but donations would be welcome. There will be a charge for boat journeys.
