A walk focussed on heathland insects
27th July @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An opportunity to see some of the insects that make heathland such a special habitat. The Horsell Common Sand Pit is a hot spot for solitary bees and wasps, including the Bee Wolf and the Green-eyed Flower Bee.
The famous Sand Pit, notorious as the site of a Martian invasion in H.G. Wells’s War of the Worlds, is now home to 1000s of Bee Wolves! The shallow bowl makes it a very special habitat for these and other amazing creatures.
Leisurely walk lead by Horsell Common Preservation Society trustee, entomologist Andrew Halstead.
