Blowfly ID and ecology at FSC Bishop's Wood, Worcestershire

Friday, September 9, 2016

Learn about blowfly identification and ecology under the expert guidance of one of the country's leading entomologists - Steven Falk. This is a course suited to amateur naturalists who would like to increase their recording portfolio, forensic entomologists requiring training on identifying adults, and vets involved with sheep-strike analysisSteven will introduce you to all of Britain's blowflies and show you how to identify them either using external morphology or dissection of the genitalia (surprisingly easy). If the weather is good, we will also attempt to collect living blowflies and learn which species can be identified reliably in the field. For further details follow this link.
