Dun Coillich Community Woodland is an excellent place to see one of our rarest butterflies, the Pearl-bordered Fritillary. During this event we will visit some parts of the Dun Coillich site where this species can be found. Attendees will find out how to identify the species and how to take part in searches for Pearl-bordered Fritillary in the Highland Perthshire area.

After we see the Fritillary, we will go for a walk to another part of the site to look for a day-flying moth called the Small Dark Yellow Underwing. This species has never been seen at Dun Coillich but the plants its caterpillars feed upon are found here, so we very much hope to see it. We will also look at other insects like bees that we see on the way.

Even if you can only stay for part of the day to look for the butterfly you are still welcome to attend.

Date and time: Monday 20th May, 10am - 2pm.
