Falls Hotel, Ennistymon, Glencree, County Clare, V95 D2PC, Ireland.

For everyone in our butterfly and bumblebee monitoring schemes, and for anyone else interested in getting involved, please join us for a weekend searching for the Shrill Carder Bumblebee (Bombus sylvarum), along with other bees and butterflies in and around the Burren.  The goal of the weekend is to highlight the plight of this enigmatic bumblebee, help everyone develop their ’eye’ for the species and establish more transects targeting this species.

Based in the Falls Hotel, Ennistymon, on the Saturday we’ll have introductory talks on its biology and ecology by Michelle Larkin, a PhD. student who is rapidly becoming Ireland’s expert on the species, followed by walks in areas with a known population and then a ‘team challenge’ to locate bees at particular sites.  As always, you’re welcome to join us for a meal in the evening in the hotel and take the opportunity to socialise afterward. The following Sunday morning will then be a general recording day for both bumblebees and butterflies finishing up at lunchtime.  A more detailed itinerary will be posted closer to the event.

There’s no charge for attending the field meeting, but you do need to register as places are limited. When registering, please indicate whether you would be interested in joining us for dinner in the hotel on the Saturday evening.
