Provisional date - A walk to hopefully see Pearl-bordered Fritillary & whatever else is on the wing.
We have been counting the Pearl-bordered Fritillaries here every year since they were first found in 2009. Following a third season of scrub clearing by local branch volunteers, we would like you to join us and hopefully see the fruits of your labours!
Whether the trip will be run on the Saturday or the Sunday will be decided nearer the time, dependent on the weather forecast. Please phone Mark a few days beforehand for the final decision.

This will be followed by a field visit to a suitable location nearby (possibly Morar beach) to look for...
The Glasgow and South West Scotland Branch invite all to this butterfly walk in the Birkshaw Forest, where we hope to see Essex Skipper and possibly Small & Large Skipper butterflies.
