An update from Bruce
I have now sorted out details of the Whiteford Field Trip with Steve Bolchover which will take place at 10am on Saturday 9th June, starting at Cwm Ivy car park near Llanmadoc, Gower. Steve is an expert on beetles and is the county recorder for them.
As he lives on Gower he knows the area well. This is an opportunity for those with little knowledge of Coleoptera to learn some basics and professionals will also find Steve's knowledge informative.
We could see the rare Dune Tiger Beetle photographed in 2012 at Whiteford - see photo.
it is bound to be a grand day out as we would say in Yorkshire... please make every effort to join us

We received this information from the Ramblers that we thought may be of interest
The Big Welsh Coastal Walk is celebrating the launch of the Wales Coast Path on 5th May, 870 miles of footpath covering the whole nation’s coastline.
The big event is happening all over Wales on the bank holiday weekend of the 5th, 6th & 7th May and we are encouraging as many people as possible to get involved. So far we have over 50 walks taking place all around Wales and 3 official launch events.
To join the walks people need to go to the google map on our website – www.ramblers.org.uk/wales where they can find out what is going on, click on the icons and then contact the walk leaders directly.
Individuals can also sign up through our homepage to get more details, and find free coastal path maps on through the CCW site – www.walescoastpath.gov.uk.
Three official events are also taking place in Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Flint, provisionally from 11am-5pm with the official opening of the path by Welsh ministers.
We hope the walks can be an opportunity to highlight the magnificent coastline of Wales and the fantastic walking available.
