London Natural History Society The place for wildlife in London

London Natural History Society - The place for wildlife in London

Gatekeeper SQUARECovid-19 brought our field and indoor event programmes to a sudden standstill earlier this year and we look forward to resuming them in the near future. The pandemic has encouraged many organisations to look to the digital world for alternative training and engagement platforms... and LNHS is now bringing you our first Virtual Natural History Talk: Lepidoptera of Perivale Wood.

This will very much be a trial. We expect teething problems as we get used to using the technology and we encourage feedback from our members about what they think worked and what could have gone better. We hope this will be the first in a series of Virtual Natural History Talks that will complement (not replace) the many other events that we offer.

Lepidoptera of Perivale Wood

Perivale Wood in North-West London is one of Britain's oldest Nature Reserves. Run by the Selborne Society, the Lepidoptera (moths and butterflies) of the site have been recorded since the mid 1960s. In this talk David Howdon, the Selborne Society's Lepidoptera recorder, will talk about the history of recording at the reserve, the species that can be found there, and how the findings relate to national trends. This virtual natural history talk will comprise of a 30-40 minute talk from from the guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. It will be hosted on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions to those that have booked prior to the event.
