Fri 24th and Sat 25th June – Pine-tree Lappet survey Kiltarlity/Black Isle

Further work to determine the current status of Pine-tree Lappet in pine plantations in the area. Again the focus will be on looking for new sites rather than confirming its presence at currently known sites.

Meet at 8.30pm at the Brockies Lodge Hotel, Kiltarlity (Grid Ref NH514418 OS Sheet 26).

Depending on the number of people/traps/generators etc, we will split into groups and set traps in the locality. Please bring along any traps you have. To help us coordinate the survey effectively please can you let us know if you plan to come along. If you are unable to attend but keen to help look for this moth during its flight period (latter half of June into early July) then please also get in touch to arrange access permissions etc to trapping sites.
