Identification Workshop for Moths: Summer Scottish Specialities
Friday 21 st – 23 rd July 2023 (2 evenings, 2 days)
We are running a series of Lepidoptera events aimed at finding some of the UKs rarest or
most difficult to see species. Join us on this summer event based around upper Deeside,
Profit from this workshop goes to Butterfly Conservation helping to support projects that
monitor, protect and manage these superb species.
Our main target is the scarce Dark Bordered Beauty which will require a focused trapping
effort as well as daytime searches. We will also operate traps at higher altitude to try for a
couple of Scottish specialities. Target Species include Dark Bordered Beauty, Northern Dart
and secondary species include Northern Arches, Cousin German, Chestnut-coloured Carpet,

Grey Mountain Carpet, Pretty Pinion, Dark Tussock and Scotch Annulet. Two nights, two
days, starting on the evening of 21st July, finishing lunchtime 23rd July.
Full details can be found on our website:
Price: £145 per person
