Wildlife Diary Sunday 10th March

by Lindsey, Wildlife Interpretation Officer

Well we had three seasons in one day here with lovely sunshine, snow flurries and hailstones which warranted a ‘white fleece’ rating on the fleece rating scale*. All this made our feeding stations very busy with our first sightings of Yellowhammer this year with two males sharing the bird table, the Redpoll back, excellent views of the Tree Creeper and a Great Tit accidentally sliding down the feeder pole –  pole dancing for birds?!

Unfortunately our webcam server has crashed so neither the Squirrel Cam or Loch Cam are available at the moment.

*The fleece weather rating

No fleece = very hot and sunny, likely record temperatures, rarely happens

One fleece = Scottish Summer –  sunny, windy with some rain thrown in

Two fleece = Scottish Spring and Autumn – wind and rain with rare glimpses of the sun

Three fleece = Scottish Winter – wear thermals

White fleece = Covered in snow, please defrost and hand me a mug of tea
