Almost June and fresh snow on the hills last night - again! Must be the fourth time now we've thought it's gone to wake up to new white stuff on the tops :)
This is the view of The Cabin Cafe at The Dragons Tooth Golf Course, also home of Glencoe Activities, all of whom offer special deals to our Lords, Lairds & Ladies - check out your VIP website here - http://vip.highlandtitles.com/

Feasgar math – Good afternoon

Last time we looked at Madainn mhath (pronounced ‘Mattin va’) which means good morning. Feasgar math is the afternoon equivalent! 

It’s one of the more straightforward phrases to pronounce, and looks almost as it sounds. The ‘ea’ in feasgar (which means afternoon) is pronounced as a short ‘e’ sound, so it sounds like ‘fesgar’. The s and g, you’ll be pleased to know, sound the same as they look to English eyes.

‘Math’ (meaning good) follows the usual rule that where there’s an ‘h’ there’s a much changed consonant! It this case ‘t’ becomes silent, so math is pronounced ‘ma’ 

All together it sounds like ‘Fesgar ma.’ So feasgar math to you :)

A similar type of capture to the pine martens clip to follow - 3 clips across 3 days - obviously a regular route for this Red Fox!

Really busy day today. As well as the tours, I had an 8 o'clock start to work with Plan Bee Ltd to set up our replacement hives and also the ones painted by Kinlochleven & Ballachulish Primary Schools.

This young stag, with new antlers barely started, was much more photogenic and friendly than the normal result... which is usually a bottom, dashing off up the hill

Busy wee spot for Pine Martens - 3 short clips, 3 different days!
Gorgeous in its chocolate and yellow-buff fur and nimble as a squirrel when it moves, the pine marten is an ace tree-climbing predator. It’s becoming more widespread again in Scotland after near-extinction, but is always scattered in small numbers and hard to see.
As with many British land mammals, you’ll more often see signs of pine marten presence than the creature itself. Droppings on tracks - narrower than fox ones and often thicker than a cat’s - can vary in their contents at different times of year. In autumn, some can be almost entirely made up of rowan berries. In snow, look for big prints, all four paws placed around a single point if the marten has been bounding. An adult can be bigger than most domestic cats.

What a lovely review:

“Outstanding nature reserve”
5 of 5 stars
Everything about this reserve is beautifully balanced to protect the natural environment whilst enabling visitors of all ages to visit their small plot of land with the help of some wonderful volunteers. I really enjoyed my visit and it was lots of fun finding my plot with the help of Stuart and David and the GPS. I'm personally delighted to play a very very small part in ensuring that this beautiful wood is protected and cared for forever. It's hard to explain how lovely it is and how much hard work and time consuming effort has been put into creative a truly wonderful place where you can take the time to appreciate the beauty of the wildlife and scenery of the wood. Thank you so much for making so many lords, ladies and visitors very welcome and very very happy.

Some more interesting shots from the security cameras. The first two are the Pine Marten who HAS worked out how to steal the Squirrel's nuts. The birds just seem to think if they stare at the plastic nut container (enclosed for squirrels) they might manage to eat one :D

Brilliant find up at the Lochan this morning... a Mallard nest with eggs. Didn't want to get too close so a bit fuzzy on full zoom! Different spot this year, it's not on the island but rather at the edge of the wood quite a distance away.

Same SpyCam location as the hind but a wee Red Fox this time...

It’s dapper, widespread and can be active by day, so you’ve got a better chance of seeing red fox than some other medium-sized predators in Scotland. Stay alert for fox sightings anywhere from lowland loch shores to the heights of a mountain.

If you see an orange-red creature, bigger than a large cat and with a long tail, moving in daylight across a field or hill, it could be a red fox. Check through binoculars to see the long muzzle, upright ears and white fur on the throat and chest. But you’re much more likely to see signs of fox presence than to encounter the animal itself. Look for conspicuous droppings (often grey-tinged, and with small mammal bones in them) on tracks.

The red fox is the most widespread and abundant land-dwelling carnivore in the world. Part of its success comes from the way it can eat a wide range of food and live in a huge variety of places, such as mountains, deserts and urban gardens. Voles and mice often feature on the fox menu, and at times - much to the irritation of farmers - so do young lambs.
