BUTTERFLY FIELD TRIP – Findhorn Dunes

Target Species: Grayling and whatever we find

Date:  Sunday 31 July

Time:  10:30am

Meeting place:  Car park at NJ036648.  Drive through Findhorn village on the B9011 and bear left taking the road signposted “Harbour” and “Beach”.  The road turns sharp right immediately after the Crown and Anchor Inn, then take the next left signposted “Beach Car Park” and “Heritage Centre”.  Carry on until you see a brown sign, “Car Park No Overnight Camping”, pointing to the right, turn here and the road quickly becomes a rougher track.  Bear left when the track splits, then after a short distance the track turns sharply to the right and widens into a parking area which is where we’ll meet.

Description:  A walk along the dunes to see if we can find Grayling and other butterflies such as Common Blue and Small Copper.  There are also likely to be Six-spot Burnet Moths. 

Approx duration:  3 to 4 hours depending on how far we walk

What’s needed:  Lunch, sun cream, waterproofs
