Reptile Survey training at Kinloch, Sleat.

Posted on

SLEF is keen to encourage more folk to enjoy the pleasures of recording some of our remarkable wildlife and to add to the biological records of the area,

To this end, Pete Minting, the Scottish Project Officer of Amphibian and Reptile Conservation has agreed to lead a field trip  on Wednesday 16th April.

The field visit will be a practical demonstration about how to identify suitable habitats for reptiles - common lizards, slow worms and adders - at Kinloch, an area known to hold these species.

This will be complemented by an indoor presentation about species identification, biology, national significance, legal status etc.

Meet at Kinloch Car Park, Sleat, Isle of Skye  at 10.30am for the field visit, afternoon session in Breakish Village Hall.

SLEF is very grateful to Forestry Commission Scotland for financial support for this training and recording.
