The beginnings

During the summer of 2021 UCD PhD research student, Gwen Hurpy, has been travelling around Ireland collecting insect samples and bat droppings. Here are some photos of Gwen and her assistants in action in the field.

Gwen will be working during the coming winter months identifying the samples our Bats and Bugs volunteers send in to UCD.
