Highlands - Moth Mania at RSPB Insh Marshes
Saturday 26th July 2014, 10:30am until afternoon
RSPB Insh Marshes car park

Target Species: Dark Bordered Beauty moth

Organiser:  BC Highland Branch & RSPB

Date:  Saturday July 26

Time:  10.30am

Meeting place:  RSPB Insh Marshes main car park, one and a half miles out of Kingussie on the B970.  Grid ref: NN775999. OS sheet 35 (Kingussie & Monadhliath Mountains).

Description:  Several moth traps will be run during the previous night as part of RSPB’s annual monitoring of the rare Dark Bordered Beauty moth which is only found on three sites in Scotland and one site in England. If the weather is fine, I’m hoping there will be time to have a walk for butterflies after the moths.

Approx duration: Into the afternoon if the weather is good.

What’s needed:  Packed lunch and midge net/repellent.

Leader name:  Pete Moore
