National Insect Week returns in 2020
Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at the Clennon Valley BioBlitz.
Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of beetles, bugs and beasties as we can before the clock runs out.
Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife.
With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at the Clennon Lakes BioBlitz.
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.
