Borgue Public Hall with a field-trip to Brighouse Bay
This traing day is an exciting opportunity to learn about Dumfries and Galloway’s Coastal Butterflies with a special focus on the rare Northern Brown Argus. The day is being run to support the surveying and monitoring of colonies and habitats of NBA along the Solway coast as part of the Species on the Edge programme.

What’s involved:
Indoor morning session: an introduction to recording butterflies and moths on the Solway Coast with a focus on NBA identification and survey techniques.
Afternoon field-trip to Brighouse Bay: see a range of species in the field, likely to include the Northern Brown Argus, and practice surveying skills.
Following this event, attendees will be able to sign up as Species on the Edge survey volunteers and be allocated priority sites within the region to survey during the summer.
