|Ulbster 'Know Your Own
Residents of Ulbster, in association with
Yarrows Heritage Trust are
undertaking regular visits to the area around Loch Watenan, to observe how
plant, bird and invertebrate life changes through the seasons.
The project is helping the Achvarasdal Woodland Management Committee
print a leaflet on the wildlife and plantlife to be found in the forest.
The project has
commissioned wildlife and landscape photographers Ken Crossan and Iain
Sarjent to take 365 photographs of Caithness to illustrate the area's
diverse wildlife, plantlife, landscape and land use. From September
2003, the Caithness Biodiversity Collection will be available, free of
charge, for local groups and businesses to use on a not-for-profit basis.
