PENNY METAL & WILL HAWKES- URBAN BUZZ
PENNY METAL & WILL HAWKES
FRIDAY 9 AUGUST, 7.30pm
What life is there in a small inner-city park? Penny Metal spent five years observing a small patch in South London and identified a remarkable 555 species of bug, beetle and other insects. She will introduce us to her remarkable neighbours, including homeless bees, solitary wasps, spiders who jump, harlequin ladybirds and snail-killing flies.
Penny will also be talking with Will Hawkes. As a boy, Will Hawkes became fascinated by the many bees and insects to be found on his home patch in the Ceiriog Valley and the Berwyns. Now he is doing a PhD in insect migrations at Exeter. He has worked in Britain for Buglife, and also researched insects in the the Alps, the Pyrenees and Borneo.
