Conservation Work Party to benefit

Dark Bordered Beauty & Northern Brown Argus

RSPB Insh Marshes Reserve

Wednesday 20th October

10 – c4pm

 

Details

We will be removing regenerating birch which is shading out Aspen suckers, the foodplant of Dark Bordered Beauty moth, using hand-tools.

We will also remove small birch scrub from areas where Northern Brown Argus is found to prevent its foodplant, Rockrose, from being shaded out.

Directions

We will meet at the RSPB Insh Marshes Reserve car park (Grid Ref NN83669984) which lies on the B970 between Kingussie and Insh village, just east of Ruthven Barracks.

What’s needed

It is advisable to wear old clothes and suitable footwear.  If staying all day please bring lunch and a hot drink although you are welcome to join in and leave whenever you want. Every little helps so if you only want to come for an hour you will still be very welcome.  Hand-tools, including the wonderful Tree-poppers, as well as loppers, bowsaws, and gloves will be available, but please bring your own if you have them.

Additional information
