Join our local moth recorder and Aberdeenshire Council ranger, Helen Rowe, to learn more about the fascinating world of moths!
Help Helen set up light and sugar traps (that don’t harm the moths) to attract these night-flying creatures. While the moths gather, we’ll go on a bat walk around the castle using bat detectors to see what’s out and about and learn more about bats and their nocturnal lifestyles.
Then we’ll go back and see if we’ve caught any moths. This is a family event, but all under 16's must be accompanied by an adult.
Please bring warm clothing, stout footwear, sunglasses/wide-brimmed hat (to shield eyes from bright moth trap light), midge repellent & torch.
Booking is essential, so please reserve your space. Please mention any special requirements; cost £5.00 per person.
If you have any queries, please call 01330 844810.
MEET: Leith Hall car park, Kennethmont AB54 4NQ. Please note - there is a car parking charge for non-NTS members.
This event is run by the National Trust for Scotland ranger service in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council Ranger Service and Butterfly Conservation.
