Horsell Hymenoptera (and Other Insects!)
31st July 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
FREE GUIDED INSECT SAFARI!
Join us for a gentle ramble onto Horsell Common with entomologist Andrew Halstead to learn about the insects on our local heaths! The plants and the warm microclimates of the heaths make them very special places for insects – a host of solitary bees, robber flies, bee wolves and spider-hunting wasps are just some of the curiosities waiting to be discovered! If we’re lucky with the weather, a one and a half hour stroll, net in hand, should discover some interesting specimens! We’ll run two separate walks starting at 11am and 2pm.
Andrew’s enthusiasm for insects is infectious, so join in the fun if you can!
All FREE of charge and no booking required!
Suitable for families with school age children. Well-behaved dogs on leads welcome.
Meet us at Heathland House, the large portacabin beyond Pime Acrobatics at Heather Farm. Please park in the main car park, or in the lane, and not the Prime Acrobatics spaces.
