Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation. Please follow the link for B&B contact details /media/872062/2016-bb-leaflet.pdf. The non-resident price includes evening meal and packed lunch.

 

This course is designed for anyone interested in the amazing diversity of invertebrate life found in terrestrial habitats. It is suitable for both countryside professionals and amateur naturalists.

Field excursions will introduce a variety of collecting and surveying techniques appropriate to a range of habitats. These will be complemented by workshop sessions back at the Centre, helping you to identify specimens to the correct taxonomic group and, where appropriate, to species level. Illustrated talks will provide an insight into the diversity, ecology and conservation of invertebrates.

Bursaries are available for this course. Please contact FSC Flatford Mill for details.

Paul Lee leads a number of invertebrate identification courses at Flatford Mill each year. He is a freelance ecological consultant specialising in invertebrate identification, ecology and conservation.
