Nature lovers are being asked to check the woods for Lobsters in a bid to help conservationists monitor moth distribution in the UK’s increasingly threatened woodlands and forests.
One of the UK’s rarest moths – spotted only a handful of times since its discovery in the 19th century - has been seen in Easter Ross 15 times in five weeks.
