I worked closely with the National Park rangers recruiting volunteers in areas that were considered red squirrel strongholds to do siting surveys in local forests to update the Scottish database of red squirrel population. The data collected indicated a growth in certain locations of new red squirrels populations moving in despite the presence of grey squirrels. This was an indication that habitat and food source was plenty for both squirrel species to survive and also that the grey squirrel population in these areas where healthy and were not passing on diseases to the less resilient red squirrels Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park
At RSPB (Royal Society for Protection of Birds) I worked on the “Aren’t Bird Brilliant campaign” , providing visitors information on Scottish Birds of Prey. Live webcams at Visitor Centres on RSBP reserves showed the amazing everyday lives of Osprey, Peregrine Falcon, Barn Owls and wild birds as well as the lovable and protected Red Squirrel.
