PENTLANDS BUTTERFLY SAFARI for Northern Brown Argus and other Lepidoptera

Meet at 10.30 am at the entrance to the West Linton Filter Station, one mile north-west of West Linton on the Baddinsgill Road (NT 133531) to record butterflies and day-flying moths in a botanically rich valley in the Pentland Hills. Park on the road-side.

Northern Brown Argus has been recorded here, there is suitable habitat for Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, and the outside chance of skippers. There are also several species of orchid found in the valley, which we will try to locate.

Bring warm clothing, waterproofs, packed lunch and enthusiasm.

No dogs as this a working sheep farm.
