Saintly Singing & Squirrels

19 Nov 2015

Why not come along to a concert of traditional Scottish music at Haddo this Saturday.

We're hosting the launch concert for St Salvator's Choir latest CD Ca' the Yowes:A Traditional Tapesty featuring performances of popular traditional songs such as The Skye Boat Song, The Turtle Dove, Loch Lomond and Auld Lang Syne. The concert starts at 1pm, tickets are available from the NTS website or by calling 01651 851440 and cost 10 including afternoon tea after the concert. 

You can find out more about the CD and St Salvator's Chapel Choir here.

It still feels a touch early to be thinking about Christmas but don't forget that the HHCOS Carol Concerts aren't that far away. This year is their 70th anniversary with a special programme featuring many of the carols performed in the very first concert in 1945. The carol concerts are always hugely popular and usually a sell-out, so if you fancy coming then grab your tickets from the HHCOS website.

Squirrels Out & About

The advantage of a few grey, rainy days in the park is that all the wildlife seems to appear out of the woodwork and if you're lucky (and quiet) you can get incredibly close without them being disturbed.

This Red Squirrel was busy by the lake on Tuesday evening- filmed with the video setting on the little work camera. According to our friends at Saving Scotland's Red Squirrels you can tell by the way it's holding the cone that it's a right-handed squirrel (as apparently most of them are!). That means the next challenge is to see if we've got any left-handed squirrels lurking in the woods anywhere...

And Finally...

The weather forecast's been changing all week but there is still a slight chance of either snow or a big freeze at the weekend. If you're visiting Haddo and it does snow then do take care on the paths and when driving up the main drive access. If you get any lovely pics of a touch of snow or ice in the park then why not send them to us or add them to our Flickr page.
