… But you can’t take Gamekeeping out of the lass!
We have been getting some new visitors to Tulloch, so of course I have had to accommodate them.
The Nature Cams have picked up some of them, here is just a random selection of our Pheasants and Red-legged Partridge.
Our AirBnB Guests have been watching them and up to now, at any one time, there has been 16 Partridge & 7 Pheasants.
Lots more footage to sort through

I run trail cameras here at Tulloch and am always keen to see what footage they have picked up, here is what was going on early doors at Tulloch yesterday

I love this time of year, you can literally feel a change in the air and we see mother nature’s magic at work, it truly is wonderful.
What is not so wonderful though, is seeing the dieing Bees. Someone commented on this to me and said there wasn’t enough food for them.
Well, this in places is partly true and is one of the reasons why we are planning and trying to establish the Tulloch Meadow.
But another reason why you may be coming across a lot of lethargic or dead Bees at the moment, is because of their life cycle. And instead of me explaining, am enclosing this link from the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust… https://bumblebeeconservation.org/news/anthonys-blog/what-happens-to-bumblebees-in-autumn
Keep a look out on the remaining flowers and plants for this behaviour from our precious and beloved Bees and see nature at work.
The images, I have just taken in this last hour with my phone and shows the Bumble Bees on the Autumn Crocus here at Tulloch.
