Each year of the project we are holding a series of invertebrate workshops on identification, recording, curation of reference collections and field craft to help boost the skills of beginners and experienced entomologists alike. We are also organising invertebrate recording days across the region to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important sites. Results will be published on this website. Other events include drop-in sessions to facilitate networking and mentoring.

Beetles: Field Techniques for Biological Recording

20th April 2018 | 10:30 am - 4:00 pm


Join Lancashire and Cheshire County Beetle Recorder Don Stenhouse at this diverse nature reserve to learn about the various methods that can be used to find beetles for biological recording. Somes examples that will be demonstrated include beating, sweep netting, pitfall trapping, hand searching and vacuum sampling.

This workshop will involve some light, staggered walking as we look at a few areas of the site.
