Summer Wonders

Your ranger has welcomed three new residential volunteers to her team recently – welcome aboard Rebecca, Charlotte and Christos ! These stalwarts will be working full time with Emma this summer on a packed programme of wildlife and botanical surveying on the Perthshire reserves, and a lot of habitat management such as removing invasive weeds.

This week alone we’ve been Bracken cutting at Keltneyburn meadow, Himalayan balsam pulling at Ballinluig Island and butterfly surveying at Tomdachoille island on the river Tummel. Here’s a couple of photos of the wonderful species we sighted amongst the vast array of native wildflowers on the meadows, such as Ringlets, Green veined Whites, Common Blues and Dark Green Fritillarys, Small Peal Bordered Fritillarys and Northern Brown Argus:
