We are excited to host Gordon Port from Newcastle University to talk to us about local pollinator species and their importance in our ecosystem. He will also advise on how you can record species in our area to help get a better understanding of what is happening to our local pollinators. The session will be a talk followed by a short walk weather permitting.
Gordon has been studying insects and other invertebrates all his life and has a particular interest in how insects find their food and the impact this has, either good or bad, on us. He lectures on insect identification, ecology and behaviour at the university and his research includes managing habitats to improve pollinator diversity and how to manage slug and snail pests.
