YOUNG WILDCATS – Wildlife mission with a camera

November 17th 2018

On 9th November 2018 nine members of the intrepid Lochinver Wildlife Watch Group went out into the woods with a Mission: to capture interesting wildlife armed only with a camera.

In two hours in dull weather in the middle of November we found quite a lot. These are some of the hundreds of pictures taken by the team. We saw woodpecker nest holes, giant leopard slugs, amazing Lobaria lichens, secretive Goldcrests, green shore crabs, fascinating patterns on Lewisian rock and baby holly trees to name but a few.

If you would more information about our group please phone Andy Summers on 01571 844654 or visit our website.
