Next talk at the Trust - Insects!



Please join us this Monday evening (24th Oct) at 7:30 pm, when Hunterian Honorary Research Fellow Geoff Hancock will be talking about why insects are so successful and why they are so abundant. He'll also tell us about some of the project work he has been involved in to unravel complex insect life cycles, from Scottish woodlands to South American forest systems. For what promises to be a fascinating illustrated talk, come along to the INHT Centre in Port Charlotte - £1 for INHT members or £3 for non-members, including tea and cake!

Red Sword-grass

I caught this moth last night giving a remarkably good impression of a dead twig. The Red Sword-grass has two flight seasons, the main one in September to November and then some adults overwinter and re-emerge in March to June. This is just the third record for Islay (with none for Jura or Colonsay), the previous two being in 1999 and 2013.
