November 28th
Insect Identification - Beginners’ Workshop, Cardiff

On Saturday, 28th November BWARS will hold a Beginners' Workshop at the National Museum of Wales, led by Mark Pavett and Mike Edwards.

Topics to be covered will include a general introduction to the group of aculeates insects (those with a sting), what they do and where to find them, plus a discussion of photography and ‘old fashioned’ collections. The latter will include a chance to look through microscopes at the different insects in the group and make a start at naming them from pinned specimens and keys provided by the organisers, whilst the former will be covered by a short ‘name this insect' quiz.

Places for this workshop are limited, so please contact Mark Pavett to express your interest:
