Sunday 27th July 2014, 10am
Glen Orrin

Target Species:  Scotch Annulet

Organiser:    BC Highland Branch

Date:  Sunday 27th July

Time:   10:00 am.

Meeting place:  Car park at NH474514 (OS sheet 26 – Inverness & Loch Ness). From Marybank on the A832 take the minor road south for 1.5 miles to Aultgowrie. On south side of the bridge turn west for 200 yards to a small car park for visitors.

Description:      Fairburn Estate has very kindly given permission for BC to hold this outdoor meet in Glen Orrin. The target species is Scotch Annulet which has been recorded in the glen for the last two years, so moth traps will be put out the night before. However it is a wonderful area for wildlife in general and we hope to see several different species of butterflies and dragonflies plus day-flying moths.

Approx. duration:  4 hours depending on weather.

What’s needed:  Boots, lunch, waterproofs and midge repellent. There are also ticks and adders in this glen so it’s advisable to wear gaiters if you have them.

Any other information:   Booking is essential for this meeting. To reduce the number of cars, lifts can be arranged in the car park before going through the locked gate and up the road to the Orrin Dam, approx. 5 miles.

Leader name:     Margaret Currie
