This is an excellent opportunity to learn about moth recording and identification, and great fun too. We will be taking a trip to Laigh Logan, a farm near Catrine which was surveyed as part of our project to identify areas of peatland with the potential for enhancement in East Ayrshire.
Tom Vorsterman an experienced local moth recorder and CEI volunteer will locate his traps on the site the night before, before emptying and identifying them with the help of willing volunteers the next morning!
Moths play a vital role in telling us about the health of our environment and are extremely useful as indicator species for habitat change. With over 2,500 species they are fascinating to learn how to identify with so many intricate patterns, colours and shapes..
