The island is open to the public (contrary to popular legend), but is visited by few.

  • 2015 - Site condition monitoring of lemon slug (Malacolimax tenellus) - Den of Airlie SSSI, River Isla, Airlie/Kirriemuir, nr Forfar, Angus, Scotland.
  • 2013 - Mollusc survey of four designated sites in Scotland: Alvie SSSI, Cairngorms SSSI, Crathie Wood SSSI, Eastern Cairngorms SSSI, all in the Scottish Highlands. CGO Ecology Ltd is part of a consortium led by Caledonian Conservation, providing consultancy services to Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), to deliver site condition monitoring (SCM) for a suite of SSSIs in the Cairngorms area with invertebrate interest features. Fieldwork was carried out in summer 2013 to collect substrate samples, followed by laboratory analysis in autumn 2013 (wet sieving, drying, microscopy) to assess the status of the target species. At Crathie Wood SSSI, the target was a population of the rare mountain whorl snail Vertigo alpestris. In the Eastern Cairngorms SSSI, calcareous wet flushes in several glens were targeted to monitor known occurrences, and search for new populations of, Geyer's whorl snail Vertigo geyeri. At Alvie SSSI, the shores of Loch Alvie and Loch Beag were sampled for Lilljeborg's whorl snail Vertigo lilljeborgi. Finally, Glen Feshie and other parts of the Cairngorms SSSI were surveyed to gather a molluscan species list, and prospect for V. geyeri. The target species are all minute air-breathing snails, ranging between 1.5mm to 2mm tall, with very sparse UK distributions. Their cryptic nature and size makes survey and monitoring difficult.

  • 2012 - Waverley Line (Borders Railway) - Reptile survey for a major railway project in Midlothian and the Scottish Borders. The reopening of the iconic Waverley Line (closed under the Beeching Axe) has been on the cards for many years, with progress accelerated since the Waverley Railway (Scotland) Act 2006. The 50km route finally reopened in 2015, and the construction operation was a joint venture between BAM Nuttall and Network Rail. CGO Ecology Ltd was instructed by IKM Consulting Ltd to perform a reptile survey of the route in September 2012. This involved a full walkover of the 50km disused railway route, through agricultural land, woodland and urban areas. Refugia were laid in 50 locations (10 roofing felt mats at each), and all were surveyed seven times in September/October 2012. Very few reptiles were found; only common lizards in one location on the route itself, and two other incidental records arose from locations within 500m of the route. Mitigation advice was provided to the client. It is quite extraordinary that such a large swathe of countryside, admittedly lowland and agricultural in the main, had so few reptiles on it. The neighbouring muir-capped hills almost certainly held more reptiles. When the Borders Railway opened in summer 2015, CGO Ecology's Director Chris Gleed-Owen took a ride on one of the first trains; something of a pilgrimage, to see how the route had (dramatically) changed.

"We applied to build a barn to be sited on an arable field.  The council asked for a biodiversity appraisal, and placed a short deadline for receipt. We engaged Dr Chris Gleed-Owen who made a site visit within days, and delivered a fully researched report with plans, species list and recommendation a few days later, within the required timescale.  We have therefore avoided the need for extensions and delays.  Thank you Chris.

Susan Ross, Frankham Farm, Ryme Intrinseca
