Highlands - Pine-tree Lappet Moth Survey
Friday and Saturday 20 + 21 June 2014, 8:30pm till late both evenings

Description: Further targeted light-trapping to ascertain the current status and distribution of Pine-tree Lappet moth in the Kiltarlity area.

Date: Friday and Saturday 20 + 21 June.

Time: 8.30pm till late on both evenings.

Meeting place: Car park of Brockie’s Lodge Hotel, Kiltarlity. Grid ref: NH514418. OS sheet 26 (Inverness & Loch Ness).

What’s needed: Bring your own moth traps if you have them.

Any other information: Depending on the number of people, traps and generators, we will split into groups to trap as many different local sites as possible. 

This event may be postponed and held midweek if it is a late season and Pine-tree Lappet is not yet on the wing.  It is therefore important that you contact Tom or Roger before-hand if you plan to come along.

If you cannot attend but would like to take part in the survey later during the moth’s flight period (latter half of June to mid- July), please also get in touch with Tom or Roger who will help identify sites and access permissions. 

Pine-tree Lappet lures can be made available to increase your chances of catching the moth.
