Established in 2000 – 18 years and counting!
The aim of the forum is to provide current information (and be a referral for past records) of Birds, Mammals and Cetaceans in the Angus and Eastern Scotland area. This is done via a forum which is open to the public and where sightings can be posted and viewed. Sightings are obviously not guaranteed but filtered as best as possible, and news regarding sensitive species may be edited if need be. It is also a handy place to post your photographs, ask questions, meet local wildlife enthusiasts and promote local wildlife events.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust is a membership organisation and this Group acts as the focus for Angus and Dundee members who want to participate in conservation, fund-raising, site visits or just attend local wildlife events. If you are interested in wildlife in Angus and Dundee or the rest of Scotland, the Scottish Wildlife Trust is your voice for Scottish Wildlife conservation.
