AGM and Field Weekend, 2011 and AGM 2012
2011's AGM weekend was held at Belstead House in Suffolk.
This year Paul Lee furnished us with a range of sites to visit ranging from woods to heaths and shingle beaches. Despite wet weather over the preceding days, the rain held off allowing a full day in the field on Saturday, though the vegetation was wet to the sweep net. Mark Nowers (the local RSPB warden) gave us a run-down of a selection of the sites on the Friday evening and over the weekend Sara Goodacre spoke on sex ratio bias in spiders and Dave Penney on spider palaeontology in the 21st century.
The weekend's write-up and species list will appear in a future edition of the Newsletter.
It is planned to hold the 2012 AGM at the Snowdonia National Park's residential centre, Plas Tan y Bwlch - details to follow.
B.A.S. Meetings Secretary, Jan Beccaloni.
