Taylor Wildlife staff had a very enjoyable (and we hope very informative) weekend providing training to a group from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.


Having made the long journey up and endured the dreaded 'campsite midge' the group were still in great form and keen to begin their weekend-long Introduction to Upland Surveying course. We kicked off with an indoor session on navigation taught by Joe, before moving outside to put theory into practice.

The Scottish Highlands has mighty lungs. Windswept though it may be when her gusts lash across the heather hills and whip over bending burns, her force and the rough conditions she creates are finite. As her breath becomes feeble and the winds die down, the landscape comes alive.
