A walk onto the lower slopes of Meall Liath. The same trip in 2014 was successful in seeing Mountain Ringlet.
We will walk north along the shore-line cliffs. When we did this trip in 2014 we saw an amazing twelve species of butterfly, including the target species.
We have been requested to do some moth identification as in previous years. Traps will be put out the previous night and hopefully will add some new species to the Gearrchoille list. This event was run on 13 June but due to cold weather only one moth showed up. Hopefully it will be more productive this time!
There is an interesting meadow just across the Old Spey Bridge with a variety of wild flowers along the edge of it beside the Spey. We can also walk back along the minor road where there are a couple of areas which are home to the Northern Brown Argus.
Join the Highlands & Islands Branch on this long weekend trip to the Silverdale area leaving early Friday morning and returning late on the Sunday, looking for the High Brown Fritillary butterfly and many more.
We will walk through the reserve looking for butterflies like the Speckled Wood, Dark Green Fritillary and Scotch Argus and we hope to see Purple Hairstreak butterflies later in the day too.
A look through moth traps run the night before. When we moth trapped here in June 2014 we recorded 76 moth species (58 macro-moths and 18 micro-moths).
Another session of cutting back and clearing trackside vegetation to improve the habitat for Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Dingy Skipper.
