The base for our 2024 Spring Field Meeting will be Llandrindod Wells in the Vice County of Radnorshire. Nigel Jones will be the leader for this meeting, which is being organised in liaison with the “Natur Am Byth! Saving Wales’ threatened species” National Lottery supported project. One of the flies we will hope to find for Natur Am Byth! is the cranefly Ctenophora flaveolata (Wasp-banded Comb-horn Cranefly), for which records from several sites in the target area are known. This is a relatively under recorded part of the UK, so there should be plenty of scope for discoveries of new species for the area. 

Those arriving during Friday 17th will be able to explore sites in the Llandrindod Well area. On Saturday 18th we will be exploring the Elan Estate. A range of sites will be available on Sunday 19th.

The usual arrangement for the spring field meeting will apply, where attendees book their own accommodation. 

If you are interested in attending and would like to be kept up to date with information and arrangements, contact the Secretary who will add you to her email list for the event.
