About the Event
Medmerry is one of Europe's largest coastal realignment schemes. In the summer its fields are bordered with swards of wildflowers 🌸🌼 Join me for a morning identification session to spot butterflies and bees around the reserve. You'll learn how to identify common species and discover which wildflowers are their favourites. (There's plenty of coastal, estuarine and farmland birds to spot, too!)
Suitable for adults from 12+. Under 18s must be supervised by an adult. 🐕 Dogs on leads are very welcome though please do not bring them if it is a hot day.
(If you want a more in-depth workshop about bumblebee ecology, lifecycle and how to identify all our common species, one of my Beginner's Bumblebee Workshops would be ideal!)
