A Ichneumonid wasp looking quizzical from Steve’s moth trap a few days ago. There are around 2500 species of these and some are still getting named! At this time of year this is most likely Ophion obscuratus (although there are some confusion sp.). Can anyone confirm? @natural_history_museum @uglosbioscience @adamhartscience #wasp #nature #science #conservation #recording #gloucestershire #biology #invertebrate

Spot the difference: Halesus digitatus (top) and Halesus radiatus. Note how the patterning on the wings forms such defined and distinctive streaks in radiatus (bottom photo). Thanks Steve for sharing these with us. #caddis #nature #gardenbiology #mothtrap #conservation #invertebrates #invertebratesofinstagram #gloucestershire #joinus #instagram

We've just uploaded a series of Winter Walks to the events section on Facebook. Of course, any plans put in place may of course change at a moment’s notice, so please keep an eye on this page or contact your walk organiser before the event to confirm arrangements if the government alters the guidance on outdoor meetings. Outdoor meetings with groups up to six are possible given the following guidelines:

1. Members will need to pre-book with the walk leader and receive a confirmation that they have a place.
2. Equipment and books should not be shared or passed around.
3. Members are asked to maintain two metres between each other.
4. You are advised to bring hand sanitizer and face masks.
5. Be aware of your own risk level and the suitability of this activity.
6. Please do not come if you are showing any symptoms of Covid 19..

The walks
We have arranged six walks before the turn of the year. They are spread around the county, and each will last about two hours, though members can come and go in the usual way. Most are general walks to see what natural history is around and are not primarily intended as recording exercises, though we shall record what we see.

Please see the events posts for dates and venues, the first is next Wednesday 14th October at Oddington Ashes.
