National Insect Week returns in 2020
Sunday, June 17, 2018 - 09:30 to 16:30
Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at FSC Kindrogan’s BioBlitz.
Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, bugs, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out.
Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife.
With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.
There are lots of contenders here – possibly the pretty red and blue rove beetle Paederus – very, very tiny amounts of its poison have been used to cure chronic ulceration in people. Ladybirds are pretty poisonous (and pretty) and can bleed foul-tasting poisonous brightly coloured blood from their knees.
