Logierait Mire is a SSSI in the hills above Pitlochry which provides habitat for the Northern Damselfly which is one of Scotland's rarest species of Odonata.
We will be working with the British Dragonfly Society to block up a ditch which will hopefully lead to more water being retained on-site and consequently help maintain the damselflies' habitat.( The site is probably interesting for moths and perhaps butterflies as well).
The work suits all abilities, but you need a steady footing as we will be working on and walking across challenging, uneven and boggy terrain.
Start: Timings to be confirmed - transport to site will be offered from Stirling for all interested in coming along.
Bring: Water, lunch (hot drink?), wellies or sturdy waterproof walking boots and work clothes - including waterproofs. Be prepared for cold conditions and bring warm hat, fleece etc..and a sense of humour!
