Learn about the fascinating world of bats and moths at the Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve. To attract nocturnal moths we will set up light and sugar traps (which don’t harm them) and while they gather, look for bats emerging from their roost in the visitor centre and use bat detectors to discover which species are out hunting nearby. Then we will return to the traps to observe the diversity of moths we have caught.

Event organised in partnership with Nature Scot & Butterfly Conservation.
