From next Wednesday (May 25th), we’ll be starting a series of FREE drop-in sessions at both the Fishnish Community Hide and the Loch Tor Hide…
Come along to spot wildlife, learn about the animals and plants that we find, and pick up some top tips for enjoying wildlife responsibly elsewhere on the island!
The Ranger will be at Fishnish between 10am – 12pm, followed by Loch Tor from 1pm -3pm.
There’s no need to book and the sessions are free, but donations to our Mull and Iona Ranger Service are always welcome.
In other Ranger Service news, we enjoyed a beautiful walk around Aros Park on May 4th. The weather was spectacular and the wildflowers were out in force – though, it was perhaps a little warm for the birds!
The Grey Herons were visibly panting in their tree-top roost, and the only buzzard to be seen was the stuffed specimen that lives in my office… he does appreciate a trip out now and again.
Spot of the day was a bright and shiny Large Red Damselfly; the first that I have recorded this year. Hopefully, many more exciting invertebrates will follow!
Thanks to the lovely guests who came along and shared the afternoon – it was a pleasure spending time with you all.
