East Scotland, Borders - Berwickshire Coastal Walk For Butterflies And Moths
Saturday 27th May 2017: 11.00am
Burnmouth, Berwickshire

Meet at 11.00 am at the top of the Burnmouth Brae (grid ref NT95406109). Have sensible footwear and clothing as well as a waterproof and packed lunch. On the day we will have options depending on the conditions. We may go south on the coastal path, skirting Partanhall, Ross, Catcairn and Hilton Bay, for Small Blue, Wall and Small Copper. It's a chance to see the more established Small Blue colonies at peak flight time as well as perhaps some early emerged Northern Brown Argus. Or we may go north towards Eyemouth to see the newly discovered Small Blue colonies and maybe more on the day. There are day-flying moths including Dew Moth and Ruby Tiger, Spring Squill and Early Purple Orchid. We could search for the locally scarce micromoth Pyrausta cingulata.
