Joint event with Butterfly Conservation: Dingy Skipper butterfly survey at the Barony A Frame and Whitehills Community Woodland near Auchinleck..

We’ll meet at the Barony A Frame at 10:30 for a 10:45 start on Saturday 25th May to look for one of Scotland’s rarest butterflies, the Dingy Skipper!

Our records will help improve national distribution maps for this species. Survey training will be provided and if we have time we’ll also try out other invertebrate survey techniques.  All records will be passed to Butterfly Conservation and appropriate National Recording schemes.

Please dress appropriately for warm weather with sturdy walking shoes, apply sunscreen, bring lots of water, some lunch and possibly a sun hat! Nets, pots and ID guides will be provided, but if you have binoculars and your own equipment, that could be useful!

There may be limited parking at Whitehills Community Woodland, but we can car-share from Barony A Frame.

Please contact Scott on 07766185987 or via scott.shanks@ea-cei.org.uk for more information or to register your attendance at the event.

* NOTE: This event is weather dependent and may need to be rescheduled at short notice.
