WREN Conservation Group Virtual Field Meeting “Bees, Bee Flies and Bees-that-look-like-wasps”

April 19 @ 11:00 - 12:00


We invite you to join us in a virtual meeting space to talk about natural history and practical conservation.

If you are like us, you’ll be missing getting out regularly to see nature and being involved in keeping the Park and Flats in good condition. You are probably missing our field meetings and practical work parties too.

To keep us going, the WREN Conservation group will run a free virtual meeting on Sunday 19 April at 11 am. This will be held online using Zoom.

Our inaugural session will last for about an hour. It will be introduced by the WREN chair, James Heal, where he will explain something of the vision we have for virtual meetings for now and for the future.

This will be followed by a short talk by committee member Tony Madgwick on “Bees, Bee Flies and Bees-that-look-like-wasps”. Tony is the Recorder of Bees and Wasps for the London Natural History Society and is on the verification team for Bee Fly Watch 2020. Naturally, the talk will focus on Bee Flies, probably the cuddliest little flies you can see in your garden or on those lock-down exercise walks though the Park, and what you can do to help with the National Recording scheme.

After the talk, there will be a Question and Answer session which will be opened up to general discussion about our activities.
