Introductory guides to wildlife that you may encounter at Whitelee, including useful links to external websites.
Even though Whitelee is an operational windfarm and contrary to what many believe, the area is rich in wildlife from lower plants such as lichens and mosses to herbs and trees as well as insects, birds, amphibians and reptiles, and mammals.
Easy to Use Guides
The countryside rangers have produced some easy to use guides to help visitors to Whitelee look for and identify wildlife. These will be added to over time and when required. The guides are intended as an introduction for anyone wanting to start recording their wildlife observations or who just has a general interest.
Experienced wildlife observers and recorders may find the species lists more useful. The guides are only intended as a basic starting point for anyone wishing to start out wildlife recording as it is not possible to provide information on all the species found in the windfarm.
If you find anything of interest or that you are unable to identify then please contact the countryside rangers with any wildlife questions. We are always interested to hear about your wildlife finds and can often provide help with identification.
Please make use of the website listings in the external websites section. These provide further help and information for identifying wildlife as well as giving information about what you have found.
