Nevis Range Field Trip - July 23rd 2016

Our 2nd attempt to put out moth traps and have a walk to look for butterflies near Fort William was fortunately blessed with reasonable weather.  26 species of moth were caught to keep everyone entertained for a couple of hours, including a lovely Minor Shoulder-knot (see photo below).

The walk afterwards was rather lacking in butterflies, only 2 Scotch Argus and a couple of day-flying moths.

The midges were less ferocious than usual so a very pleasant day was had by all I think.
