An Introduction to Flies (03/03/2018) Saturday, 3rd March 2018 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Hoverflies, houseflies, fruit flies, soldierflies, bee-flies, craneflies, and more: flies are all around us, but are often overlooked or even actively discouraged.
Using photos, specimens, keys and microscopes we will explore the incredible world of the Diptera. This course will provide an introduction to fly families and how to identify them.
The course includes a mix of presentations and activities. Most of it will be classroom-based, but we will also include a short field session at Woods Mill.
