Reptile Training Workshop North Ayrshire
Fri 19 May 2017, 07:30 – 13:00 BST
Interested in recording reptiles but not sure where to start? Come along to one of Where's Wildlife in Ayrshire's Reptile training workshops!
This informal course will provide a general introduction to all the reptiles found in Scotland, their ecology, how to identifty them, and how to locate them. To try to get a glimpse some reptiles, we will first set out to Shewalton Woods. Here we will check some refugia which have been placed on the site to increase our chances of seeing these shy and elusive species. We will then head back to the Scottish Wildlife trust office in Irvine for a short classroom session, lead by reptile guru, Rennie Mason who is an experienced ranger based at Whitlee Wind Farm.
No previous reptile recording experience necessary - just a keen interest in nature and an enjoyment of seeing and identifying the wildlife around you.
Each course is free, but any donations to help cover the costs of running the courses would be gratefuly received.
The Where's Wildlife in Ayrshire project is part funded by the Scottish government and the European Union- Ayrshire LEADER 2014-2020 programme. Additional funding source are the Heritage Lottery Fund, and East, North and South Ayrshire councils.
