Sluggan Bridge near Carrbridge

Organiser:  BC Highland Branch


Target Species:  Small Blue


Date:  Sunday June 17


Time:  10.30am


Meeting place: Carrbridge car park grid ref NH907227, we will then go along Station Road to a small parking area near Sluggan Bridge in as few cars as possible, grid ref NH875213 OS sheet 36


Description: Last year some BC members found a colony of Small Blue butterflies which had not been recorded previously at this site.  We’ll look at the area they were found and see if we can discover how extensive the colony is.  If time/weather/enthusiasm permits, there are other areas of Kidney Vetch, the larval foodplant, nearby that could also be checked.


Approx duration: 3-4 hours


What’s needed: Packed lunch, midge repellent, stout footwear


Leader name: Audrey Turner
