This event will search for the spectacular Kentish Glory moth in suitable habitat (open areas with stands of birch) within Forestry Commission Scotland’s Inshriach Forest.
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.
After gathering at the visitor centre for tea, coffee and home-bakes we will check the contents of moth traps set locally the night before, followed by a field visit to a suitable location nearby (possibly Morar beach) to look for Grayling and other butterflies and day-flying moths.
This is a beginners’ introduction to moths course, covering identification of moths along with techniques and equipment involved in surveying and monitoring moths. We will look through moth traps run the night before. Please note: there is a charge for this event: Adults £12.50 RSPB Members £10
