Glenborrodale RSPB Reserve Field Trip, 15th June 2014

Pete Moore


Following hot on the heels of the Carna Island field trip came another Ardnamurchan moth event. Four light traps were run at RSPB’s Glenborrodale oakwood reserve on the night of June 14. The following morning, seven folk met up to go through the traps. 


A total of 58 macro-moth and 18 micro-moth species were recorded, a good night’s trapping.
