Barred Tooth-striped, Kiltarlity - 7th May 2016
The event was held at the Highland Liliums Garden Centre, Kiltarlity on 7 May having been postponed from Saturday 30 April due to poor weather
One of the aims of the event, a repeat of the one in 2015, was to link in with survey work carried out over the past two years to ascertain the local status of the Barred Tooth-striped Moth of which two had been trapped locally in 2010 and 2011.
Unsurprisingly in view of the recent low temperatures, none were trapped.
However the event was a great success with 34 people attending, seeing well over 100 moths of 15 species on a fine day in very pleasant surroundings..
The highlights were a Herald, 2 Streamers and about 50 Brindled Beauties, many of which had freshly emerged and were in excellent condition.
Other moths trapped were Scarce Prominent, Red-green Carpet, Grey Birch, Red Chestnut, Brindled Pug, Water Carpet, Engrailed, Brown Silver-line, Common Quaker, Early Tooth-striped, Hebrew Character, and Clouded Drab.
The event concluded with tea, coffee, biscuits and cakes for those attending.
