There are outcroppings of limestone in the Tomintoul-Glenlivet area which support a lime-loving flora which is very localised in the Highlands. Our moth trapping will target such an area near Tomintoul since it is possible that there are moth species present whose foodplants are part of the lime-loving plant community.

Insh Marshes NNR near Kingussie

A look through moth traps as part of the reserve’s annual monitoring of Dark Bordered Beauty moth, found at only three locations in Scotland. Last year, the moths were so late to emerge that none were seen at this event in late July but there were plenty of other moths to enjoy. This year, the event is a bit later in the season so hopefully we will see our target species.
