Pollinators in wild flower margins at Fairfield, Lancaster
We’ll be making simple 10-minute timed observations of the pollinators visiting flowers using the FITCount App (Flower-Insect Timed Count) (app available on Apple and Android). Pollinating insects play a vital role in our environment, ensuring that many of our crops and wild plants are able to set seed and produce fruit. Scientists need to know how pollinator populations are changing, and we can help! Beginners are welcome – no experience is necessary; we’ll help you get started and you’ll be off and running. Directions: Meet at the gate beside 123 Aldcliffe Road. Grid ref: SD 470 606. Limited car parking available on canal side of Aldcliffe Road just beyond Haverbreaks bridge; some 3hr spaces before the bridge (from Lancaster).
Additional InformationNo knowledge or experience necessary. Everyone welcome. Great photography opportunities. Binoculars useful. If weather doubtful do ring to check in case of cancellation or postponement. Children welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are not allowed. Suitable outdoor clothing & sun protection are strongly recommended. Stout footwear is required as we’re walking along field margins. Bring water to drink. There is no charge but donations to North Lancashire Wildlife Group are welcome.
