East Devon long weekend field meeting POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

Submitted by Nigel Jones on

POSTPONED: 2020 BWARS Long Weekend Field Meeting in East Devon in conjunction with Clinton Devon Estates and the RSPB

Date: 26th – 29th June postponed until 25th to 28th June 2021

The event is being organised to better understand the aculeate fauna of the Pebblebed Heaths which have been under recorded for a considerable number of years.

The vast majority of these extensive lowland heaths are within the ownership of Clinton Devon Estates who have kindly agreed to host this event. The heaths are managed by a consortium of interested parties including the RSPB and the Pebblebed Heaths Conservation Trust.

The weekend will consist of an indoor meeting with talks and workshops on the first day and followed by a series of visits for recording and collecting for the remaining days. Obviously the field trips will be weather dependant.

There is no charge for the event but attendees will need to arrange accommodation for themselves. I will need an indication of the numbers of people who would like attend the weekend by the end of January. Please email me at k.leaver57@gmail.com or write to me at: Mr Kim Leaver, 15 Le Marchant Close, Dunkeswell, Honiton, Devon, EX14 4XD.

Unfortunately the indoor event will have to be restricted to 10 people but the site visits are open to all.
