National Insect Week is HERE
Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 13:30 to 15:00
Come and help us explore the gardens and record all the wildlife, big and small, that makes the gardens their home.
In partnership with the Lancashire Wildlife Trust.
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.
