Something fishy going-on at Ranger events

Something fishy is going on as The Highland Council Countryside Rangers team up with Ness and Beauly Fisheries Trust to look at life in our rivers and in the Beauly Firth.

The first of two events takes place on Wednesday 29 July at 11am until 1.20pm near Invermoriston. The focus of the outing is Fresh Water Pearl Mussels, a rare and fascinating creature.   This is a chance for anyone coming along to learn from the experts, watch an electrofishing demonstration and take part in the various activities.  The cost is £4.00 for adults, £3 for concessions and £11 for a family of two adults and two children.

The second event, ‘From River to Firth - A Fish's Tail’ takes place from 9am to 2.30pm on Friday the 31st of July and is free thanks to funding from the Highland Seashore Project. It involves a day of exploration around the Beauly Firth and neighbouring burns.

The rangers and fisheries biologists will be telling the story of creatures that use both the sea and fresh water. They hope to see the salmon, trout and eels in action and learn about other wildlife dependent on both environments.

Booking is essential for both of these events so please get in touch with the Rangers to find out more and secure your place.  Meeting place given out on booking. Contact Jenny on 01463 255291 or rangers.inverness@highland.gov.uk .
