The lambs are still up to their shenanigans.

This little girl had to be rescued after getting her head stuck in a fence.

Ranger Carol folded the lambs ears back and popped her back through the fence.

Hopefully the lamb has learnt her lesson and won’t do this again!

Summer brings an abundance of Rosebay Willowherb (Chamaenerion angustifolium)!


Did you know Rosebay Willowherb has a few other names?

It’s most commonly called Fireweed or even Bombweed!

This is because if there has been a fire, or after the bombing of London during WWII it is one of the first plants to regrow on the scorched ground.

It’s even called Fireweed in some of the Ranger Teams favourite books – JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring!

Did you know a baby Hare is called a Leveret?

This one was spotted on the road up to the Yurts!

Hares give birth to young that are ‘precocial’ – this means they are fully furred and able to move around by themselves almost instantly after being born!

The Kelburn Garden Party music festival has been and gone for another year.

With it came new amazing artworks as part of the Neverending Glen Trail, including:

‘The Hart of the Glen’ by David Cemmick

Rob Mulholland’s ‘Orbs in Nature’ and ‘Elementals’

Sue & Pete Hill’s ‘Forest Chandelier’ plus lots more!

The July weather has been changeable all month.

We’ve had a couple of lovely evenings paired with the wettest misty mornings.
