Group Description

Our aim is to enjoy, study, conserve and promote awareness of natural history on the Isle of Seil and the surrounding area of Lorn. We organise field trips all over Lorn, invite national and local speakers on subjects of natural history, and co-operate with conservation organisations to preserve and maintain Seils biodiversity. We believe that by understanding the local ecology will can help promote awareness and protect the natural world we have to enjoy on our doorstep.

The photo is of the rare Marsh Fritillary (Eurodryas aurinia) butterfly a UK Biodiversity Action Plan species which is in severe decline, except here in Argyll. It's food plant is the Devil's Bit Scabious which is abundant here on Seil. It can be seen in flight during late May and June at Scottish Wildlife Trust's Ballachuan Hazel Wood reserve.
