Make a beeline for Stillingfleet during National Insect Week

Yorkshire’s leading wildlife experts will put gardens in the spotlight at an event near York for National Insect Week when it runs from 20-26 June.

Pond-dipping, bee identification walks, moth-trapping, bird-ringing, owl pellet dissection and scout and guide badge activities have been lined up at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens on its fifth wildlife day.

Organiser Vanessa Cook, who has been welcoming wildlife into her RHS partner garden for over 35 years, wants to enthuse people about what’s in their gardens and how to share even the smallest of spaces with animals, birds and insects.

She said: “It’s very easy to make our gardens more wildlife friendly and by acting together we can help stop the decline of some of our important and iconic creatures. This is a fun day out where you can learn a lot and make a difference.”

Among the organisations attending the event are British Trust for Ornithology, Bumblebee Conservation Trust, Butterfly Conservation, East Yorkshire Bat Group, North Yorkshire Rotters, Yorkshire Amphibian and Reptile Group, Yorkshire Mammal Group, East Yorkshire Bat Group.
