Mammal detectives on the trail

Mammal detectives will be hitting the trail in Alford next Wednesday, April 16, from 2 - 4pm.

Discover who has been out and about while looking for animal fur, food, prints, poo and more on a walk (approx. two miles/3km) through Haughton and Murray Parks - red squirrels may even be spotted.

The detectives will also see if anything has been caught on a trail camera set up previously and find out how to send

in sightings to the North East Scotland Biological Records Centre mammal atlas project. Children aged up to16 must be accompanied.

Meet at old visitor centre/new scout hut car park, Haughton Country Park, Montgarrie Road, Alford, and take

outdoor clothing suited to weather, stout footwear, if you have them, binoculars. Booking essential, tel: 013398 80868 or email:
