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.

Goyt Valley Invertebrate Recording Day
14th June | 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
A general invertebrate recording day in the Goyt Valley, Peak District (VC58, Derbyshire). This is a joint meeting with Sorby Invertebrate Group.
We’ll walk up the valley for 15-20 minutes, recording as we go until we reach an open area of grass moorland and upland heath, west of Errwood Hall where we’ll do the majority of recording. This area has no conservation designation but includes a variety of interesting habitats, some of which are on open access land. Once we’re finished recording in this area we’ll return to the car park and there’ll be an optional drive to a few 1km squares with no invertebrates records in recent decades in a ‘square bashing’ exercise.
Please meet at the free car park (SK012748) next to the Errwood Reservoir.
Booking essential: Further details 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.
