Tutors – Jim Flanagan, Paul Richards, Derek Whiteley.
This workshop will look at the typical species of brownfield sites and the field techniques used to find them and to keep voucher specimens. The three tutors will each provide a different slant relating to their own specialist groups. (So you can expect a good range of bugs, beetles, millipedes, woodlice, harvestmen, hoverflies, picture wing flies and maybe some bees and wasps.)
There will be some fieldwork out at Littleworth Park, the former site of Monk Bretton Colliery followed by an identification session in the field centre at Worsbrough Mill & Country Park to look at the finds for the day and an opportunity to examine other species.
Tea and coffee and biscuits will be freely available but bring along a packed lunch.
