This week the office has become a 'pop-up' pitfall laboratory with our wonderful volunteers sorting through the invertebrates collected on St Agnes, Gugh and Bryher as part of the monitoring for wider species. Spiders, woodlice, springtails, beetles, lawn shrimps – the volunteers are learning a lot and getting used to the differences between cerci and furculas!
