92 days to go to National Insect Week
Saturday, June 25, 2016 - 10:30
Join the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Branch at Bramshott Common, where we are aiming to see early Silver-studded Blue butterflies and other heathland invertebrates.
Meet in the car park at the end of Rectory Lane. Grid ref: SU855337, nearest postcode GU30 7QZ.
This can be reached directly off the A3 northbound, taking the lane-turning after the Liphook interchange (this is just before you get to the top of the hill, do not miss it! as there is no access to Rectory Lane from the southbound A3)
or leave A3 at Liphook interchange and turn immediately right into Church Lane, which leads on to Rectory Lane

There are lots of contenders here – possibly the pretty red and blue rove beetle Paederus – very, very tiny amounts of its poison have been used to cure chronic ulceration in people. Ladybirds are pretty poisonous (and pretty) and can bleed foul-tasting poisonous brightly coloured blood from their knees.
