...Following the recent Volunteers' meeting, there will be a Squirrel Survey Training Day hosted by Ken Neil, the Tayside Red Squirrel Project Officer.Ken will be joining SNH staff on Saturday 2nd February at 9am for a walk into Levenmouth woods on the south east corner of Loch Leven.He
will be demonstrating the standardised technique for surveying squirrels according to the ongoing Scottish Squirrel Survey.
Sightings for both species of squirrel are essential over the next 10 years in order to gain a better understanding of which native populations are most threatened by the spread of the invasive Grey Squirrel.The standardised survey takes place regularly all over the country, but there are some gaps in the local area which we hope to encourage people to fill through this Training Day.
