We hold free and heavily subsidised invertebrate workshops and webinars 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 run an invertebrate recording day programme to bring together the invertebrate recording community and facilitate improvements to baseline data coverage at selected important / under-recorded sites.

Winmarleigh & Cockerham Moss Invertebrate Recording Day
2nd September 2020 | 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Winmarleigh and Cockerham Moss is owned and managed by Lancashire Wildlife Trust. ‘It is Lancashire’s best example of a lowland raised peat bog. Nestled near Garstang, between the villages of Cockerham and Winmarleigh, the reserve is a real hidden gem, but is still recovering from a chequered past’.
The emphasis is on recording invertebrates and therefore the day is not suitable for complete beginners.
A footpath runs through the middle of this site. The site has difficult access due to the numerous drains and tussocky vegetation so care must be taken. The site is currently not open to the public so please do not attempt to visit by yourself.
We will follow social distancing measures and places are limited. Events will be subject to cancellation as a result of any changes that may occur to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.
Booking essential: Further details regarding meeting place etc. will be circulated before the day.
