A colony of reptiles on the east shore of Loch Lomond was monitored intensively during 2012 to understand population numbers, distribution, movements and biology throughout the year.

Large numbers of European Adder, Vipera berus, Slow-worm Anguis fragilis and Common Lizard Zootoca vivipara were found. This talk will describe these observations and outline an environmental mitigation plan for a proposed hydroelectric scheme for this site.

So, if you’re interested in Scotland’s native reptiles and want to find out more about the species and the challenges face by new developments and proposals, this is the talk for you. This talk is free and open to everyone, just come along.
