We have had two successful visits to the Morrich already this year (2011), but we have another opportunity to visit on Saturday, 9th July, when there will be more chance to look for butterflies and insects.Those who have already had their safety briefing can just turn up at the meeting point below.
For any who have not had the briefing should get in touch with myself or David a.s.a.p. to discuss arrangements.
Also please note that the 9th is a Saturday, and the Range gate (for info at NH 831 826 near deep ditch and pine tree) will be locked and we will need to walk from there – or cycle as we did in May. For those with no bike, even the near part of the Range and the lochans are not too far and very well worth a visit.
The site is very wet at present, so wellies will be useful if going near the lochans. Good walking boots and gaiters were ok last time.
Meeting point will be at 10.30 at the general Fendom entrance (NH 821 814) by the Land and Marine mega shed on the Tain-Portmahomack road. Plenty of parking there for car sharing/bike unloading etc.
This is a fabulous and very large site, and any chance to see it should be taken!
Any queries – just ask!
