National Insect Week returns in 2020

Walk at Sluggan Bridge

Sunday, June 17, 2018 - 10:30 to 14:00

Last year some Butterfly Conservation members found a colony of Small Blue butterflies which had not been recorded previously at this site. We’ll look at the area they were found and see if we can discover how extensive the colony is. 

If time/weather/enthusiasm permits, there are other areas of Kidney Vetch, the larval foodplant, nearby that could also be checked.

Meeting place:  Carrbridge car park grid ref NH907227 (nearest post code: PH23 3BB), we will then go along Station Road to a small parking area near Sluggan Bridge in as few cars as possible, grid ref NH875213 OS sheet 36.

Approx duration: 3-4 hours

What’s needed:  Packed lunch, midge repellent, stout footwear
