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.

UK National Ecosystem Assessment (NEA)

NEA report - page 20
I was a little disappointed to read a BBC News article entitled The great myth of urban Britain by their Home Editor Mark Easton, where he seems to be suggesting (to me anyway) that because figures published in the UK National Ecosystem Assessment (NEA) seem to show that only about 2% of the country is built over, we've nothing to worry about and should go out and enjoy.

This leaves me feeling a little bit uneasy because the reality is, and the report shows this, that we are steadily destroying our environment by over population and exploitation; and have been doing so for centurys.

This assessment is well worth reading and understanding, for its implications for the future.

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.
