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.
Burton Point and Denhall Quay Invertebrate Recording Day
9th August | 10:00 am - 4:30 pmFree
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.
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.
