Organiser:  Butterfly Conservation Highland Branch

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.
