Recording and Covid-19

We hope that those of you fortunate enough to have gardens will record the flies you see there: much useful information can be collected in this way.  Clearly, neither the recording nor study of Diptera are essential activities so travelling to do so would be in breach of Government rules.  Jennifer Owen’s inspirational book Wildlife of a garden: a thirty year study (Royal Horticultural Society 2010) shows just how valuable records and observations from gardens can be.   Please keep updated with Government’s directions at
