Come join us for a short walk along the coastal path Kincraig Point to see and photograph our target species the Northern Brown Argus.

This is one of the few sites in Fife where this butterfly are present in good numbers. The day will involve walking along the coastal path looking for Northern Brown Argus and at coastal NBA habitat; we will also search for eggs on its food plant Rock Rose.  We are also likely to see Common Blue, Dark Green Fritillary, Small Heath, Small Tortoiseshell, Painted Lady and Small Copper. Day flying moths are also often present such as Silver Y, Six Spot Burnett and we are likely to find Camomile Shark caterpillars on the unscented Mayweed.

We will gather in the Kincraig car park (NO 469 005), just before the Shell Bay caravan park, at 11:00am to open and view the contents of a moth trap run overnight at Kincraig. The walk will start at 12:00 and return to the car park about 15:00.

This event is an easy but moderate walk (5.0 km) over terrain that is even and relatively dry; dogs are not permissible on this event.

Spaces are not limited but please contact events coordinator if you intend joining us.
