Blue Ground Beetle Search at Dram Road

 

The Buglife Cymru team (Clare and Liam) are organising two daytime Blue Ground Beetle searches in Skewen, Neath, to look for overwintering adults at two of the newly confirmed sites for the beetle in 2019. This will involve searching under and within deadwood in the woodland (as sensitively as possible). Further details of these two events can be found below:

Wednesday 29th January 2020, 10AM to 1PM – search of Coed-y-Graig Community Woodland.

Saturday 22nd February 2020, 10 AM to 1PM – search along the Dram Road.

For both searches (the order of which may change), Buglife will meet at the end of The Highlands, Skewen, Neath, SA10 6PE - https://goo.gl/maps/gQ8oseHRZVUe3xR47. There is plenty of parking at this location and it is within easy access of both of the above sites.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Liam Olds on Liam.Olds@buglife.org.uk so Buglife know many people to expect. If anyone requires a lift, Liam is happy to collect people from a nearby station and from anywhere along my route (M4 west from Junction 34 for Miskin).

Please share amongst your contacts to anyone who may be interested.
