Conservation work and sightings on the Perthshire reserves:
Today the conservation team spent the day at Loch of the Lowes doing general maintenance tasks around the reserve. We began building the pine marten den boxes that are to be put up if evidence of pine martens is found in the area.
We also repaired key sections of the fence along the Dunkeld footpath. When we returned to the visitor centre, a roe deer was seen in the meadow. It came very close to us, but was startled by a pheasant and ran in the opposite direction.
Yesterday, the team worked on the Angus reserve of Montrose basin. Several tasks were carried out, including strimming the areas of vegetation surrounding the visitor centre and hides and constructing a screen fence in the car park.
