Advanced Great Crested Newt (GCN) Course – Lane End, Buckley, North Wales

This course is run over two days, and is designed to give you the foundation to work towards obtaining your GCN survey licence. Prior knowledge of newt ID is recommended. Course content will cover topics including conservation, best practice, legislation, identification and survey techniques as well as the opportunity for practical application of learnt techniques at Lane End Nature Reserve, Buckley and Aston Community Centre, Queensferry.

The course will run from 11:00 to 23:15 on Saturday 21 April 2018, and 08:30 to 15:30 on Sunday 22 April 2018

Participants will need to bring small torches/head torches with them and wellies (which will need to have been cleaned of all mud and debris for biosecurity reasons). High powered torches will be provided for the survey (if you have your own 1 million candle-power torch e.g. CB2, please bring it along).

Refreshments will be provided, however, please bring lunch/drinks and wear warm clothing. On Saturday evening we will be having a meal at a local eatery for those who wish to attend. Please note participants will need to pay for this separately on the night but we will need to know in advance how many will be having a meal so that we can place a booking. Menu choices will be sent out prior to the course.
