AGM and Field Meetings

There is an Annual Field Meeting & AGM, usually the first weekend (Thursday to Sunday) after Easter. We aim to move the location around Britain. Accommodation is usually field centre type. During the day a variety of sites are visited for the purposes of species recording. During the evenings short talks, identification workshops or other activities are held depending on demand and attendance. Notice of the meeting is given in the newsletter. Visitors from other countries are always welcome and should enquire of any of the officers for further information.

Additional Field Meetings are arranged from time to time, details given in the newsletters.

A list of previous field meetings and links to respective field meeting reports can be found here.

BMIG Bursaries

BMIG Bursaries have been introduced to help towards the costs of attending the annual field meetings. If the expense of travel and accommodation is putting you off coming to an annual meeting, a BMIG Bursary may be for you. More information here


BMIG Residential Field Weekend and AGM 2024

BMIG’s annual gathering in 2024 will be in North Wales from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th April. We will be based at Plas Tan y Bwlch near Maentwrog. This is ideally placed for coastal parts of north-western Wales such as the Llyn Peninsula and for the varied landscapes and habitats of Snowdonia National Park (Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri). BMIG has block-booked accommodation at Plas Tan y Bwlch. The TOTAL COST (Thursday pm to Sunday am) will be £295 per person including VAT for single use of an en-suite room with full catering. 

BMIG Bursaries are available to reduce the costs of the meeting for members attending the meeting for the first time. In return we would expect a short, written report on your experiences of the field meeting for the newsletter. If you have attended a BMIG weekend before then you know what to expect but we would warmly welcome anyone thinking of coming along for the first time. There is no expectation of attendees being able to identify everything or even anything they find and many newcomers get started by joining more experienced workers on field visits and picking up tips on collecting and identification as they go. Discussions and microscope work may go on long into the evening and the social side of the meetings is something regulars look forward to every year. 

LAST DATE for booking is 31st January 2024, but PLEASE BOOK EARLY  ~   Download BOOKING FORM HERE
