National Insect Week returns in 2020
Thursday, June 21, 2018 - 10:00 to 11:30
Come and join us at Quarrymill Woodland Park for a morning of play and discovery.
This popular monthly event, for families with pre-school children, starts with a walk into the woods followed by lots of seasonal and wildlife inspired fun.
Please come dressed for the weather and bring a small snack as being outdoors can be hungry work.
We meet at the carpark next to the Old Parish Church, Burnside in Scone.
To attend this event please register in advance.
Female water snipe flies Atherix ibis clasp each other and cluster in big round aggregations on the end of branches overhanging rivers – males entering the swarms are mated repeatedly until they die. The females then lay their eggs in to the water – and all die still in their tight aggregations.
