Other news – the Sand martins are back! I heard them chirruping (though couldn’t see them) when stopping off at the River Isla yesterday. The Chiffchaffs have been calling for a couple of weeks and the Ospreys have been back at Loch of the Lowes since mid March. We are able to see the beavers again – the nights are now light enough that we can see as well as hear them, which is fantastic. It’s like being back with old friends watching them swimming, diving, feeding and hearing them chomping away.
Did you catch our Beaver Canoe Safari with Michael Portillo as part of his Great Coastal Railway Journeys earlier in the year? If not, you can catch up with it at the link below – we are on from 15 minutes in – he was really excited to see the beavers swimming past our canoes. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0013wzf
If you would like to book on our Beaver Canoe Safaris on the River Tay at Aberfeldy, booking is direct with our canoeing partners this year at: https://t.co/xsh9ir8YZ0
We have been really busy with the Tayside Ponds Project over the past few months – working with volunteers to improve ponds for wildlife by removing overgrown vegetation and planting native wildflowers for pollinators. And we’ll hopefully complete the Forfar Swift Project this month after years of delay due to Covid and nestboxes not being available. It will be brilliant to finally get them up so there are new places for the birds to breed this summer, expanding the population of these amazing birds in Angus.
I am looking forward to another summer of helping people discover how wonderful our Perthshire Wildlife is, especially the beavers (of course). Do get in touch so we can help you get that bit closer to nature, which is one of the easiest ways to de-stress, lift your spirits and put a smile on your face!
