Have you wondered how you can make your garden more attractive to wildlife in a way that’s also mutually beneficial to you? In this talk, we’ll show you a number of simple and practical ways in which you can attract key species, both to increase biodiversity, and to help make your gardening easier. From creating a wildlife pond to tips on natural pest control, there will be something for everyone no matter the size of garden or the amount of time you have to spare. As the talk is hosted by Froglife, we’ll also have a keen focus on amphibians and reptiles, which are often overlooked in wildlife gardening despite their key ecological roles.

Natural History Live by Bjorn Beckmann, Peter Sutton and Tim Gardiner
The sound of grasshoppers and crickets is evocative of the height of summer. They are among our largest and most abundant insects and play a crucial role in the food web. The talk gives an introduction to the species of Britain and Ireland, covering identification of the commonest species by sight and sound, and a look at their biology and ecology. We finish with a look at the Grasshopper Recording Scheme, and how your records help research and conservation – documenting declines, increases and new arrivals, and studying the underlying causes.
