The Wednesday morning walks, which are a steady 4 to 5 miles in length, are of general interest, with the option of a pub drink and meal afterwards. Field meetings are more focused on an area or specific flora or fauna.
Grid Reference and start times are as stated. Please bring your own refreshments for all-day outings. For further information, or if you need a lift, please use the contact form. No dogs are allowed on Nature Reserves and in other places must be kept on short leads.
All persons attending our events do so at their own risk. No responsibility for any mishaps occurring during any excursion, walk or field meeting is accepted by the Society or by the walk leaders.
Neonicotinoids and bees
Tuesday November 6 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Dr. Ben Woodcock (C.E.H.)
This talk will discuss the impacts and implications of the use of neonicotinoid pesticides on both wild and honey bees in Europe. The talk focuses on explaining some of the evidence base underpinning the recent EU ban on these chemicals that were used on wheat and oilseed rape in the UK.
Visitors welcome (£3 charge). Members are invited to bring exhibits and share their observations at all meetings.
