Cairngorms Moth Extravaganza!

Friday 9th to Sunday 11th May 2014, 8.00pm-5.00pm
Kingussie

We are very concerned about the current status of the Kentish Glory and the Small Dark Yellow Underwing, and are hosting a moth extravaganza to target recording at both species. The Kentish Glory is associated with areas regenerating birch. Our event will focus on Forestry Commission Scotland’s Inshriach Forest and the Glenfeshie area. We will also look for the elusive and beautiful day-flying Small Dark Yellow Underwing at sites in the Kingussie and Newtonmore area. This moth is associated with bearberry and has not been recorded in the UK for two years despite previous targeted recording.
