Wildlife enthusiasts of all ages came to Geilston Garden's Wildlife Day in Cardross recently.

There were representatives from the Helensburgh and District Beekeepers' Association, the RSPB, the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s “Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels” initiative, Scottish Natural Heritage, moths and butterfly representatives, and Norrie Foster with his barn owl Jet.

They shared their knowledge with such enthusiasm that many a budding Attenborough will have felt quite inspired.

The day was jointly organised by the National Trust for Scotland, which owns the garden, and the Friends of Geilston support group.

Allison Hillis, the Friends’ chair, told the Reporter: “There was a great family atmosphere with the ‘Habitat Quiz’ proving to be a favourite thanks to the lucky dip prizes donated by The Toy Shop in Helensburgh.

“I would like to extend special thanks to the committee for their hard work in planning and preparing, to the volunteers who helped on the various stalls and produced delicious cakes and traybakes, to the garden staff who ensured that the day ran smoothly, and to the family and friends who came to support and enjoy the garden.”
