Volunteer day- Large Heath butterfly monitoring with East Ayrshire Coalfield Environment Initative

Airds Moss

Come join the CEI for population monitoring of the Large Heath Butterfly on Airds Moss in East Ayrshire.

Over the past few years, with the help of CEI volunteers, they CEI have been very excited to record Large Heath butterflies on RSPB Airds Moss and their other bog enhancement sites. Large Heath is a priority species for the UK Biodiversity Action Plan and also a bog specialist. With the help of volunteers, CEI will continue to monitor this population which will not only help to contribute to a nationwide survey to determine the population and abundance of butterflies in the UK but also as an indicator of the condition of bog habitat on the reserve.

To register to attend or for more information please get in touch with Daisy Whytock, CEI Project Manager, at daisy.whytock@ea-cei.org.uk or call 01563 553513.
