Join the West Midlands Branch on this Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary survey and training
day at Sherbrook Valley, Cannock Chase
A training day for local volunteers keen to help survey and monitor the Northern Brown Argus butterfly in Dumfrie & Galloway.
The event will focus on two scarce and threatened butterflies; Northern Brown Argus and Small Blue. The aim of the day is to inform participants about their life-cycle and habitat requirements and then visit two local sites to look for eggs and adult Northern Brown Argus and Small Blue eggs and larvae. It is hoped that participants will subsequently look for both species in the area to help determine their current status.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about why and how to trap and record moths.
Learn all about the Narrow-bordered Bee Hawk-moth and help us survey for their caterpillars.
Goat moth is a spectacular and rarely recorded moth whose larvae live within the heartwood of deciduous trees. A recently formulated pheromone lure has been successful in attracting males at known sites in Scotland. Lures and light traps will be set the previous night at a known haunt of the moth. The field trip will check these traps as well as visiting known Goat trees to smell and look for characteristic signs of occupancy.
It is hoped that participants will subsequently look for these characteristic signs and smells elsewhere in the Highlands to help find new sites of this very under-recorded species and thereby help determine its current status.
