Organiser: Butterfly Conservation Highland Branch
Date: Saturday September 15
Time: Anytime from 10.30 – c4pm
Meeting place: RSPB’s car park opposite the Boat of Garten junction on the B970 (Coylumbridge to Nethybridge Road). Grid ref: NH952190. OS sheet 36 (Grantown, Aviemore & Cairngorm area))
Description: We will be clearing and cutting back trackside vegetation and scrub to improve the habitat for Small Blue by encouraging the spread of its sole foodplant Kidney Vetch.
Approx duration: Up to 5 or 6 hours but you are welcome to join in and leave whenever you want to. Every little helps so if you are able to come just for an hour or so, you will still be very welcome.
What’s needed: If staying all day bring lunch and wear old clothes as well as gloves. Hand-tools including the wonderful Tree-poppers and gloves will be available but feel free to bring loppers and bow-saws if you have them. Also don’t forget to bring a cake if you can!
Any other information: Tea and coffee will also be provided.
