Leaf Hoppers in the field

Alan Stewart lead a course on Leaf Hoppers at FSC Preston Montford over the weekend of July 20-22. Course members  identified 23 species on the Preston Montford site and a further 06 species on a visit to Llanymynech Rocks. 10 of the species had not been identified at Preston Montford before so these will be a welcome addition to our Wildlife Report for 2012

Over 400 species of Leaf Hopper have been identified in the UK so we have 5% of these on site.

We intend to run a similar course next year so watch out for details on the FSC website or contact the Centre directly.
