Intern Diary Week 2 – Final preparations!

The week before last was my final week of training. I’m quite happy about it because it means I’ll start spending more time with the peregrines, on the other hand training has been really fun and educational so I’m sad it’s ending.

We had membership recruitment training where we had a chance to learn more about some of the work the Scottish Wildlife Trust is developing in more detail – from the Coigach-Assynt Living Landscape to the Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels conservation project – and the vital role member’s play for these projects to keep rolling.

We also went for a long walk around the reserve to make sure all the features and paths are in tip-top condition. It was really great having the opportunity to explore a bit more of the reserve and (again) be amazed by its beauty!

Last (but definitely not least!) I had my on-site peregrine watch induction. I am so excited to be working here three days a week in the spectacular surroundings of the Falls of Clyde wildlife reserve. It really is the closest view of peregrines in the UK!
