Work Party on Mull

Thursday 24th to Sunday 27th April 2014, 10.30am-4.00pm
Kilninian, Mull

The day-flying Slender Scotch Burnet only occurs in the UK on Mull, Ulva and Gometra, nowhere else. The moth inhabits sunny, south-facing slopes, with underlying basalt rock where its caterpillar’s sole foodplant, bird’s-foot trefoil, grows in short, flower-rich vegetation, with some bare ground. However, at one of its sites, the cliffs near Kilninian, the moth is threatened by encroachment from Cotoneaster. This invasive non-native shrub has escaped from gardens and has become well-established on the undercliffs and cliffs, threatening the moth's breeding habitat.
