Updates and posts to this web site are delayed due to ongoing problems I am having with internet access. This is because of the degradation of the existing phone line infrastructure which it is hoped will be upgraded by the spring of 2017.

Woodland Trust Campaign to save Englands ancient forests


The letter at the bottom of this post is currently being circulated in response to the Governments proposal to sell off the national forests.
There will be only one reason for a private company to buy a forest and that will be to make money from the sale of the timber. They'll pay lip service to other issues but in most instances the bottom line will be profit and shareholders.
Likewise, the Government is only proposing a sell off to save money and have someone else to blame when something isn't right. I appreciate that the Government needs to reduce the national debt but, in my opinion, selling the nations forest estate is not the way to do it; and if you think there will be large enough funds made available to help support charitable ownership, you're away with the fairies.

to shape the long-term future of England's public estate
...so please stick with us.

This petition is just the start of our public campaign.
Our website will always have the latest news and ways you
can get involved in saving England's ancient forests.

We always appreciate your time and support - what we really
need now is your help to gather as many voices as possible
for this call to action. Please pass on the link below to 
your friends and ask them to make their voice heard too.

This web site is about the wildlife, particularly the mammals, of the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve area in the north west Highlands of Scotland, UK; and the equipment I use to search for them, which is chiefly trail cameras.

I provide a technical support and parts service for the Ltl Acorn range of cameras and the income from this provides for the upkeep of this site and the purchase of cameras for my own surveying.

I hope you find the site useful and informative; and please contact me if you have any questions that I haven't already covered.
