New Trip Report – Scotland

Another report from Cheryl Antonucci who is adding trip reports more quickly than anyone at the moment and has just admitted to herself that she is really a bona fide mammalwatcher. Yay!

Scotland, 2013: Cheryl Antonucci, 1 week & 11 species including Pine Marten and European Beaver.

    And I just wrote in my trip report that my place for pine marten was the best in the world 😦

    BTW, there’s been a paper in an obscure Russian journal claiming that changing the genus name for red-backed voles from Clethrionomys to Myodes was a mistake. I don’t know what the ICZN will decide (assuming anybody notices the paper outside Russia).

    Speaking as the American twitcher possibly alluded to inside the report, that account was not quite right. In 2010 I had just one night to spare — what can I say? I was teaching in London, and only had one night that I could be away between duties — and I did indeed go to the specified lodge for pine marten. I did not open the door or do anything foolish: it just was one of those nights…you stay up all night and you dip out. I did though have hedgehog. It’s lovely countryside, so it’s on the “some day to go back to” list.
