Wildlife Break Examples

Winter

Winter can be a hard time for wildlife in the Perthshire Highlands. With the winter cold, there’s a chance of seeing mammals such as Stoats and Mountain Hares in their winter coats and Red Deer will often wander closer to towns and villages. Suitable vantage points can provide good views of soaring raptors such as Red Kite and Buzzard scanning the ground below for dead animals.

Golden Eagles kick off their breeding season early with aerial courtship displays and young adults will be looking for a territory to call their own. Flocks of woodland birds such as Great, Blue and Long-tailed Tits can be seen often with Treecreepers and Goldcrests flitting amongst them. Winter can be rewarding, but patience and warm clothes are a must!
