Cornhill wildcats caught on camera
By Graham Crawford
A BANFFSHIRE man may have captured extremely rare pictures of a Scottish wildcat and her kitten, just yards from his house.The crofter, who lives with his wife a few miles from Cornhill, is keeping their identities and location secret because the wildcat is a protected species.There could be fewer than 400 of them remaining in the Highlands, making them rarer than Bengal tigers and at risk of extinction.If the Cornhill sighting is verified, it would back up reports that the cats are extending out to agricultural areas of Aberdeenshire from their more common habitat around the Cairngorms.
