East Scotland: Aberlady Bay Field Trip
Saturday 22nd July 2017, 10.30am-3.30pm
Aberlady Bay local nature reserve, East Lothian

Join the East Scotland Branch on a joint field trip with the Edinburgh Natural History Society.

There are a few species of butterfly that are good to see at Aberlady Bay Local Nature Reserve (LNR); we will be looking out for Small Skipper, although we may also see Dark Green Fritillary if we are lucky.

Meet at 10.30am at the Reserve car park (grid ref. NT472806), near the wooden bridge over the burn and onto the reserve.

Stout footwear is advisable.

Bring a packed lunch if you intend to stay for the afternoon.

This event is taking place during Big Butterfly Count, the largest insect citizen science project in the world. Why not download an ID chart and take part in a 15-minute count during the event, which runs from 14 July - 6 August? The results help us see how butterflies are faring across the UK.
