2017 Onwards Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms Kentish Glory Survey Data
This dataset contains kentish glory records gathered as part of the Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms Project. The Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms (RIC) project will work to improve the conservation fortunes of some of the Cairngorm National Parkís (CNPA) rarest species by recruiting local volunteers to help survey for them, as well as offering advice to landowners on how best to manage habitats for their needs. RIC is a partnership project involving RSPB Scotland, the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA), Buglife Scotland, Butterfly Conservation Scotland and NatureScot.
Cairngorms National Park and other areas of Scotland (including but not limited to Perthshire, Deeside and Inverness-shire).
Volunteers were given a web app which indicated suitable 1km squares for surveying for Kentish glory. Volunteers were then given pheromone lures to find males in the field and discover new sites for the species. To find the moths, the volunteers would find suitable habitat of young birch woodland and then attach the lure to a branch with a piece of string and wait for up to 30 minutes for a male moth to appear. If a moth did appear, a record was taken. Some records also made using a light trap or with visual daytime hand netting for adults and early life stages
