Attended an extremely interesting course today on Pine Marten ecology and conservation run by Johnny Birks and John Martin.
Trip to Ben Lawers, Perthshire
I have posted an album of photos from our trip with the volunteers to Ben Lawers, Scottish National Trust site in Perthshire on Facebook where we learned about their project to restore woodlands in the upland areas as we will be doing in partnership with FCS at the Bennan site, north of Loch Trool. The 2 day course was organised by Highland Birchwoods and hosted by the Scottish National Trust. Many interesting mountain woodland plants were seen and nursery techniques to raise tree species discussed.
