Natural Hebrides Discover and Explore Pollinating Insects

Post by christinej » 04 Aug 2013, 17:28

Natural Hebrides - Outer Hebrides Biological Recording
Discover and Explore Pollinating Insects with Bill Neill – Bees and Wasps & Chris Johnson – Butterflies and Moths

Friday 16 August, 9.00am – 5.00pm
Northon, Isle of Harris

Spend some time with the OHBR team and learn how to record and identify bees, wasps, butterflies and day flying moths.
We will be concentrating on field identification and recording techniques for pollinating insects but we will also be looking at flowers, hoverflies, fungi and anything else we can find.
There will be help with general biological recording techniques from taking a grid reference, filling in a recording form and sampling, to where to get help with identification.

Please come and join us for the day or just an hour or so. Experts and novices are welcome.

Meeting point: Temple Cafe, Northton, Isle of Harris (grid reference NF988903)

During the day you will find us wandering around the machair and saltmarsh.
All events are subject to suitable weather conditions. If in doubt please check the OHBR website or contact Christine Johnson (telephone 01870 610758 or 07765 514195).

Further Information is available from Christine Johnson by e-mail
