Raiders Road–1st September 2012
Our intention was to do the last of our butterfly surveys, however our transect near to Clatteringshaws was completely blocked off and there were people and cars everywhere-Merrick Rally arghhhh!
We headed for The Raiders Road Forest Drive as we hadnt been for some time and this was much quieter.
We parked by The Otter Pool and saw signs for Giants in the Forest, we had a quick scout around and came across one!
Find out more about Giants in the forest here
Lots of toadstools about too, must be autumn!
Weather not great, rain threatening

Moved on to Stroan Loch
