led by
Micheline Sheehy Skeffington

Joint with the Royal Entomological Society - this is a new venture to bring different interests together regarding conservation management for plants and invertebrates. Three short talks will be followed by a simple lunch and a 3-hour trip to the Royal Entomological Society Nature Reserve at Daneway Banks.

The Large Blue butterfly should be in flight and it will form one aspect of the excursion. Other invertebrates of interest include the Rugged Oil Beetle and Pearl-bordered Fritillary.

Plants of interest include Anacamptis morio (Green-winged Orchid), Prunella laciniata (Cut-leaved Selfheal) and Galium pumilum (Slender Bedstraw).

Numbers are limited to 15 members from each society and there will be a small charge for lunch and transport.
