Spring is on it's Way!

Posted on Friday, March 04, 2016

Snowdrops have been out for a few weeks now, crocuses are just unfurling and daffodils will be in flower within a few days. It’s always a special time of year - the cusp between the end of winter and the start of spring. It’s nature that tells us when spring is here – the birds start singing to establish their breeding territories and we heard our first blackbird song of the year just the other day. It was so beautiful that we uploaded a short clip on to our Youtube channel here.  It’s well worth a listen! 

This year we are running our guided wildlife walks as usual – from Bluebell Walks to Red Kite Rambles to Private Beaver Safaris – along with Canoe Safaris with Outdoor Explore to see the tracks & trails of beavers in the wild, and our Wildlife Eco-tours. The Wildlife Eco-Tours can be whole or half day tours and we work out the itinerary according to which species you want to see – we will ensure you have the best day out possible! 

We are running a fun, family event in the Easter holidays at The Hermitage near Dunkeld looking at Spring Unsprung – why not join us? All the details are on the Facebook page and website. We look forward to seeing you soon!
