The species that cohabit on the Highland Titles Nature Reserve are very important to us. They are positive evidence that our conservation work on the land is having the impact we want.

Learn about the species on the Highland Titles Nature Reserve

We know how much or lords and lairds love to read about, hear and watch the species currently living on the reserve and so we have started putting together species profiles for the Highland Titles’ flora and fauna.

These species profiles will act as bios for the individual animals and plants on the reserve including fun facts and a brief introduction to the species. The profiles are a great way for you to find out more information about your favourite species on the reserve.

Here is the first ‘litter’ of species profiles, with more to come shortly!

What do you think?

We’d love to hear your thoughts on our first ‘litter’ of species profiles! What other information would you like to know about the flora and fauna on the Highland Titles Nature Reserve? Feedback is greatly appreciated and as always, we’ll endeavor to incorporate it into our next ‘litter’ of species profiles.

Please feel free to suggest species that you’d like to see profiles for next. Species can be selected from either the Bumblebee Haven or Glencoe Wood species list. Use the comment section below to suggest!

      Hi Emily, we don’t allow any kind of hunting on the land. We want to attract animals to the estate, not the other way round.

    I’m glad you don’t allow foxhunting and I take it the badger cull is not allowed on your land? Do you have info on hares, owls, bats, red squirrels not to mention birds of prey such as eagles, falcon, kite etc? Keep up the good work!

    Do you kill grey squirrels on this land?

      We do not kill any animals on the land, even non-natives. In fact there are no grey squirrels anywhere near us. We have a small population of red squirrels which we encourage by offering some supplementary feeding.

      We have a good population of pine martens, who predate squirrels and would preferentially catch grey squirrels if they became available.

    I admire your protocol to not kill anything on these lands. I am somewhat concerned about the wild cat not the native small cat you’re going to introduce though. It might kill off some of the smaller species. But I leave that in your capable hands. You’re doing great things! Thank You

      Thank you Judy

      The wildcat we hope to save is already in Scotland, where it has been for the last 10 thousand years – since the end of the last ice age. We have no plans to reintroduce it, but simply to prevent its extinction. All ecosystems need predators and the wildcat is one of Scotland’s finest.
