North’s Seat Wildlife

This week we have been doing some “weeding” at both the heather patches at North’s Seat, removing bramble and cutting gorse to encourage the heather to spread. We were lucky enough to see some of the smaller wildlife too. First was a gorse shield bug and here is Sam’s photo.

I managed to get this picture of not one but two juveniles which I was pleased about.
