Event Details

A general invertebrate recording day at Windy Bank (VC59, Greater Manchester) and a possible additional site nearby.

Windy Bank Woods - Forestry England

A flat, open site with a number of large ponds, wet woodland and rough pasture, along with tributaries of the Glazebrook River running through. There are pockets of new planting to increase the woodland area. The site has no conservation designation.

This area (1 km squares) has not been subject to any focused invertebrate recording apart from some moth trapping according to Greater Manchester Local Records Centre (GMLRC). Indeed, other than Lepidoptera, they are just 3 other invertebrate species recorded on the local records centre database for the main 1 km covering these sites - all of which are dragonflies.

We are currently trying to secure permissions to visit Bedford Moss as an additional site. Alternatively, we may go to Highfield Moss (a Lancashire Wildlife Trust site 4.3 m west of Windy Bank) in the afternoon. 

Booking essential: Further details e.g. meeting place etc. will be circulated a week before the day. You will be notified via email if the event is cancelled due to an adverse weather forecast.
