What got the most love?

The top ten things...

  • 1 Making plans for the Lek It Be campaign 2024.
  • 2 Trial signage in Carrbridge asking people to keep their dogs on a lead in capercaillie areas during the breeding season and 77% of dog walkers did.
  • 3 The Lek It Be campaign reducing disturbance at lek sites this spring by encouraging birders, photographers and wildlife guiding companies not to look for capercaillie.
  • 4 A new remote camera in Abernethy enabling people to watch capercaillie in real-time without disturbing them.
  • 5 A strategic plan to reduce disturbance to capercaillie by mountain biking activity in Badenoch and Strathspey. Over 130 hectares of capercaillie habitat already less disturbed by mountain biking activity as a result, and dedicated sessions to help riders aged 12 – 18 learn how to continue this work.
