Dark Bordered Beauty Moth Monitoring

Join Butterfly Conservation and Cairngorms Connect at RSPB Scotland Insh Marshes as we look through live-catch moth traps and hopefully get a glimpse of the rare Dark Bordered Beauty.

There are currently only three locations in Scotland (and one in England) where Dark Bordered Beauty moth is found. RSPB Scotland Insh Marshes is one of them. The moths are monitored annually through light trapping and this event will give you the chance to see what we find! There should be plenty of species to see in the traps, some of which will be nationally scarce, but Dark Bordered Beauty moth is expected to be star of the show.

There’s no need to register for this event – just turn up on the day.

Some areas may be rough underfoot. It is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies, and we recommend sturdy footwear.

When: 27th of July from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Where: We'll meet at RSPB Scotland Insh Marshes Car Park. what3words: ///epic.youth.venturing and grid ref: NN 77535 99821
