Bats, Moths & Stars At Greenmyres

Discover some of the fascinating nocturnal inhabitants of community-owned Greenmyres Farm, as we use smelly mixtures and bright lights to attract moths, plus bat detectors to locate and identify bats. A local astronomer will be on hand too with a telescope to view the wonders of the night sky (or demonstrate what would otherwise be visible if it is cloudy)!

Under 16’s must be accompanied. Bring warm clothing, stout footwear, sunglasses/wide-brimmed hat (to shield eyes from bright moth trap light) & torch. Booking essential. Event organised for Moth Night 2017 with Huntly & District Development Trust (Greenmyres Working Group), Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service & Bat Conservation Trust. 

MEET: Greenmyres Farm, signposted off Hillhead – Insch road, near A96 junction ~ 4 miles S of Huntly AB54 6AG (more detailed directions can be given on booking)
