Come and explore which minibeasts live in the woodland of Northumberlandia.
Two drop-in sessions starting at 11.00am and 1.00pm. Please pay in the cafe.(Part of the craft fair/market stalls weekend).
The activity will take place in the woodland on natural terrain, off the main path, so please be prepared for uneven ground. It is recommended that you wear closed toe footwear and warm outdoor clothing.
Wheelchair users and people with limited mobility please contact organiser 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.
