Our Wildlife

We  have regular daily visits by the resident Red Squirrels plus there are plenty of birds and visiting ducks for you to see. We have counted up to 30 ducks - which wander up on the lawn to be fed twice a day most days. We often see ducklings from May/ June on wards and in 2015 saw two ducks rearing a brood together.  One duck tried to help another in 2016 but Mum was not interested. Waiting to see what 2017 brings :)

We have resident wild rabbits who come up to be fed when called. Currently we have up to nine rabbits who visit and are fed twice a day. Some of them have quite a bit of black in - this was from a couple of black female domestic rabbits that escaped many years ago and mated with with wild rabbits at Wester Lix.

Currently we seem to have two adult red squirrels and two grown up babies visiting our decking and that of Wildgrass Cottage. We also have a large number of Coal Tits and Blue Tits as well as Great Tits and Chaffinches. We are visited each year by Siskins from the Spring until around mid summer. We have seen Wrens and Tree Creepers and Crossbills - all these are up in our little wood. We had a brief visit from a Goldfinch in May.

We have daily visits from four Rooks - not sure where they are visiting from.

The Grey Heron/s can often be seen stalking around the ground looking for food. We also get visits from various species of Deer - especially when the weather is not so good.

We briefly saw a Hoopoe on one of the cottage windowsills - rare to see it in Perthshire. We also had a two day visit from a Cormorant! They are more likely to be seen sitting on the bouys on Lochearn.

We have yearly visits from our Swallows which are lovely to watch swooping around. We also have Pipistral bats that can be seen at dusk. Ours is a male roost.

We have been told there are Spotted Fly Catchers on the other side of the lochan. Red Polls have also been reported - so come and see f you can see something no-one else has seen.

plus we get regular visits on our decking from at least three Pine Martens - they visit early to late evening and we can always give you a call to come and see them :)

So if you love Wildlife  . . . then come and spend a week here and see what you can spot and then there are the wildflowers . . . I am thinking about doing a little book of local wild flowers for you to take out with you and see how many you can spot.
