Cairnsmore Critters: a wildlife recording event

The Galloway and Southern Biosphere, SWSEIC and NatureScot will be hosting a day of wildlife recording at  Cairnsmore of Fleet NNR. We will be looking for elusive species such as peregrine falcon, large heath butterfly and pale butterwort (a carnivorous plant!).

We will especially need the help of young Nature Detectives to find the small and fast minibeasts that call Cairnsmore home.

The event includes refreshments, expert hosts and a guided walk at  Cairnsmore of Fleet NNR. (Grade: Easy)

Booking: via Eventbrite or contact Jenna at [email protected]

Sturdy footwear and outdoor clothing is advised.
