Stag beetle ecology
Time & Location
About the Event
The Stag Beetle is a spectacular insect with a fascinating life cycle. The species had suffered major declines over many decades and is classed as near-threatened by Natural England. We are lucky that the areas of South-east Suffolk and North Essex from Colchester to the border with Suffolk are still relative strongholds.
We are delighted to have Colin Hawes talk to CNHS about their ecology. Colin lives just a few miles on the Suffolk side of the Stour. He has been studying Stag Beetles for at least a quarter of a century and some of his original research has uncovered secrets previously unknown. The Stag Beetle of course is also the logo of the CNHS!
