Updated Newsletter

The two walks we have had so far have proved a real success, the last walk down by the harbour being particularly good. The highlights were the Wigeon, Goldeneye, Teal and a Siskin. As you will see below the indoor programme is not as extensive as before, the reason behind this is due to the time of year. The next walk will be back to a Saturday, please bear with us as we find a day and time that works best for the outdoor meetings.

We are hoping that we will be able to get outdoors after school in the spring and summer, and save the indoors for the cold and dark of winter. For this reason we will be going to monthly indoor and monthly outdoor at present. We will pass a full diary in the next newsletter in two weeks. It is also hoped to do some trips further a field and get involved with various fairs around the town.

We have now secured some lottery funding; this will enable us to purchase equipment for the group, again, more of that later. We have installed a bird feeding station in the school and nest boxes in the field opposite the school.

It has been good to see parents involved with the walks, and we would welcome anyone who would like to come and help monthly with the indoor meetings. See either myself, Nicola Mackenzie, David MacLennan or Mr Mackenzie.

February Walk

Dingwall Wildlife Explorers

Low Tide Walk

Dingwall Harbour/10.30 am/Sunday 25 February 2007

We will meet at 10.30am in the car park at the very end of Ferry Road (proceed in between the two houses and round into the car park). We will then walk up the Conon along the shore, then crossing the two level crossings at Pitglassie, avoiding any roads, and returning to the car park at 12.30am.

Please dress appropriately as it is likely that we will encounter wet and muddy ground. It is also possible that it will be cold being so close to the Firth, so plenty of layers recommended.

As the walk is 2 hours we will have a short break to have a snack, so please bring something tasty to eat (preferably chocolate covered!!)

All children must be dropped off and collected, and we encourage you to come along and join us.
