The next meeting is this Wednesday 13th July to continue our Denaby Ings Project. Meet at 2pm in the car park SE498009. The leader is Colin Howes, he sent this message about it:

“Since Wednesday afternoon’s weather is forecast to be HOT (23 degrees C), humidity around 39% and UV levels ‘High’ you are advised to wear a Sunhat, Sunscreen on exposed skin and bring fluid to drink (… sounds like a line-up for a group photo.).

I’ll bring a couple of nets and a supply of collecting tubes for anyone wishing to sample insects in flight or in tall vegetation. Also with some of  Denaby’s notable insects living under the loose bark of venerable Crack Willows along the course of the old Dearne, it would be useful to demonstrate their continued presence here. Although Denaby has a sizeable invertebrate species list [see NCC Invertebrate Site Register (Roger Key, 1986)], there’s ample opportunity to make discoveries, particularly in this time of climate change, so come along and add something new.”

Best Wishes

Margaret Prior
