We hold free or heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops on identification, recording, curation and field craft to help boost the skills of beginners and experienced entomologists alike. These are complemented with drop-in sessions to facilitate mentoring and networking. We also organise invertebrate recording days across the region to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important sites.

Burton Point and Denhall Quay Invertebrate Recording Day

30th August | 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


A general invertebrate recording day at Burton Point and Denhall Quay (VC58, Cheshire). These saltmarsh areas are owned by the RSPB and from part of the Dee Estuary SSSI.

We’ll be targeting two areas of the saltmarsh on the day. In the morning, we’re be look at an unusual habitat interface where freshwater runs into the reedbed that had allowed an area of Alder and Willow fen to form. In the afternoon we’ll mainly be searching an area of marsh at Denhall Quay near the Harp Inn but there may be an opportunity survey a further area in the late afternoon.

Dee Estuary SSSI Citation

Booking essential: Further details regarding meeting place etc. will be circulated a week before the day. You will be notified via email if the event is cancelled due to an adverse weather forecast.

Please note we had an old date on 9th August, which has been pushed back 3 weeks due to an adverse weather forecast.
