An introduction to finding and recording insects – Indoor and Outdoor Workshop

May 25

An introduction to finding and recording insects – Martin Harvey
BENHS Dinton Pastures – May 25 – 2024, 10:30 – 16:00.

This workshop will help you gain experience finding insects in the field, exploring the habitats at Dinton Pastures, and provide a chance to try out identifying and recording insects. This will include both photographic and specimen collection approaches – participants do not have to collect specimens to take part, and can choose to focus on photography, but specimen collection will form part of the day.

Martin Harvey is an entomologist and biological recorder based at the UKCEH Biological Records Centre, where he works on projects including the iRecord online recording system, liaison with national recording schemes, and is part of the team for the UK Pollinator Monitoring Scheme. He also teaches for Field Studies Council. As a volunteer Martin runs the national Soldierflies and Allies Recording Scheme, and is County Moth Recorder for Berkshire vice-county.

Whilst there is no charge for our workshop, nor any need to be a member, by joining you ensure these workshop can continue to be offered.
