BUTTERFLY FIELD TRIP - ARDERSIER
Target Species: Small Blue
Date: Either Saturday 28 May or Sunday 29 May (weather dependant)
Time: 10 am until about 2pm
Meeting place: Ardersier picnic site car park, 200m past the village of Ardersier on the left hand side of the road to Fort George. Grid reference NH 779557 (OS map 26, Inverness and Loch Ness).
Description: Previous work parties have endeavoured to boost the size and spread of the population of Small Blue butterflies on this site by planting and sowing kidney vetch - its caterpillar food plant. On this outing, we will look for Small Blue and hopefully find that our previous efforts have paid off.
What’s needed: The walk will mostly follow paths that are dry underfoot.
Bring a packed lunch – it’s a lovely site to explore.
Whether the trip will be run on the Saturday or the Sunday will
be decided nearer the time, dependent on the weather forecast.
Please phone Mark a few days before for the final decision.
