Focus on Highland Wildlife
Focus on Highland Wildlife attempts to bring together all the information we have about certain groups of wildlife in Highland in summary form, and with more background information than is possible from just maps and charts.

The intention is to add to the groups treated over time.

The pages display information, maps, images, phenology charts and links to relevant resources.

Anyone wishing to compile material on their favourite wildlife group should contact the .  No web skills are needed - just provide text, pictures and links.
