Lacewings are fascinating insects that are very under recorded. In the afternoon we will go for a walk around St Cyrus NNR to look for the very rare Bordered brown lacewing. This lacewing is found only at two sites in the UK at Holyrood Park and near Muchalls. There are historic records of this species from St Cyrus- will we be lucky in finding it??
