Here's a fun summer walk for those available on a weekday evening!
The British Ecological Society hosts a number of walks throughout the summer, all of which are free of charge but fill up very quickly. A friend recently alerted me to these walks and I managed to book 6 spaces (myself + 5 members) for The Secret Lives of Urban Insects on July 24th, from 6-7 pm.
We will meet outside of Charles Darwin House by 5:45 and join up with the walk.
Please note, I have limited RSVPs to 5 people because I was only able to book the 6 places in total. However, if you're interested and available and not one of the first five to RSVP please do try and register yourself directly with the BES here: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/event/6903202665, and if you get a space let me know via email and I will add you to our list so you can join up with us.
**Please only RSVP yes if you're quite sure you can make it, because there are limited places and we want to make sure every place I reserved is filled on the evening.
More on the talk, from the event website:
"The most common creatures in London are insects, yet their presence in the urban environment is often forgotten. You might be surprised where you can find insects in the city, if you know where to look. Join the British Ecological Society on an evening walk through the streets and open spaces of Bloomsbury to find out more about the secret lives of insects in the heart of London. Discover ants, bees, bugs and much more along the way with insect expert Gabrielle Flinn.
Gabrielle is currently researching bumblebee behaviour at the University of Nottingham. She has a particular interest in the roles of social insects in wider ecosystems, particularly in rainforests. Learn more about her research on YouTube."
I look forward to seeing some of you there!!
