Coul Links - Fonseca's seed fly - action please

Highland Council has approved the conversion to a golf course of part of Coul Links, an important site for Diptera including one of very few sites known for the endemic Fonseca's seedfly, Botanophila fonsecai.  They have chosen to disregard the national and international importance of the site for wildlife and the huge number of objections received, including from Scottish Natural Heritage, Buglife, RSPB and ourselves.  The last chance for the site is to persuade the Scottish Government to review and reverse the decision.  Please add your voice to the call from them do do this, by taking part in the petition at https://e-activist.com/page/25176/actio … d=Buglife.  Thanks! Robert Wolton, Chairman and Acting Conservation Officer, DF.
