Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Scotland

ResearchDrones and ConservationDrones recently went to Scotland to examine the potential of using drones for the conservation work of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The team went to the amazingly beautiful Caerlaverock wetland area to obtain images and footage of the wildlife and vegetation in the area. In the video you can see some of the footage and preliminary mosaics that were made from the photos taken during the flights.

I love seeing stuff like this being shared with the community Drones/Flying Robots capture the most beautiful videos of sites that no manned aerial vehicle could safely capture! 

Thanks for Sharing!,

That's my clan's castle!  What happened to the trebuchet?  It used to sit right out front the times I went and visited.

Great work Simon, I love the VTOL landing! You Maija looks great - I'd no idea you could get effective results in such high wind
Cheers Paul

Excelent stuff, am planning to survey a wetland area at North Berwick Law over the summer to help out the East Lothian Countryside Rangers, at least I hope to (waiting for the release of APM V3 to fix magnetic interferance problems).  Will have to get into contact with you guys over the weekend to see if you've got any good tips (especially about shared airspace and microlites), exams to do first this week though :(
