Nevis Range Field Trip - July 2nd 2016

The forecast for Saturday 2nd July was for rain, especially in Lochaber! However, four people had been in contact to say they were intending to turn up, I think it was to see the moths rather than looking for butterflies.

So, on the Friday afternoon we duly put out the moth traps in the rain, collected them the next morning and met up with the four people to show them all of the six moths! Fortunately, from an overnight trap in my son’s garden, I had kept Grey Arches, Pinion-streaked Snout and a few more.

So everyone enjoyed the moths. However they were all quite keen to try again on a better day for the walk, so we intend to go to Fort William the weekend of 22/23rd July but that will depend on a good forecast. They all know to keep an eye on the website for a short notice message.
