National Insect Week returns in 2020
Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 10:45 to 13:00
If you have seen a tiny green, red or blue blur whiz by you – it was probably a dragon or damselfly. Like so many species in the UK, they are declining and need our help. Now that the sun has finally started to shine, these wonderful creatures will be emerging, so it time to start to start looking out for them and if possible, to record any sightings.
At this talk and walk event, DWT Trustee Michael Coates will take you through:
Weather permitting, you will then be taken to a nearby pond to hopefully spot a good selection of dragon and damselflies. So, whether you just want to learn more about these colourful and inquisitive creatures or you would like to help gather scientific data for the Trust, this event is ideal.
To attend this event please register in advance.
Insects can have interesting mating behaviours including specific calls, movements and gifts.
