Thanks Ollie & Harry for adopting a mink raft. Doesn't look like you got too wet and muddy installing it!
If they can do it, so can you!
See website for details.

This is a critical time for our invasive mink control project. Jan - Apr is breeding time so males on move looking for a mate. V important we catch them before breeding. We use our network of mink monitoring rafts to locate mink and once detected in an area we put live capture traps on the rafts. 
You can help by reporting mink sightings or adopting a raft. We are working in Highland, Moray, Aberdeenshire, Angus and N.Perthshire.

February's Wildlife Watcher is a hybrid wildcat. This thirsty cat was caught on one of our river cams coming to the river for a big drink! Amazing footage we thought! 
For more info and other #trailcam footage see the #wildlifewatcher feature on our website.

Otter family launches our monthly #WildlifeWatcher feature. We've been using trail cameras to monitor for invasive mink but the camera have been also capturing some secretive native wildlife going about their business too! We will be featuring an animal each month on the Wildlife Watcher page of the InvasiveSpecies.Scot website.

Invasive American Mink have devastated our native wildlife since establishing in the wild in the 1960's. 
We are currently trying to remove mink from northern Scotland (N.Perthshire, Angus, Aberdeenshire, Moray & Highland). If you can help by adopting a mink raft or trap please get in touch.

Giant hogweed, invasive but stunning and majestic towering overhead, even the dead stems. I guess that is what attracted people to bring it into their gardens...only problem was it escaped and is now creating havoc in the countryside.
