During this workshop we will look at the features used to identify Ireland’s Bivalve species and other flotsam cast up on the tide and we will offer helpful suggestions on identification resources. The morning will consist of a short introduction to the Explore Your Shore! project, followed by an illustrated talk with particular emphasis on key identification features of bivalves. In the afternoon we will explore Brittas Bay Beach to practice our field skills and hopefully record a wide variety of bivalve species. This workshop is suitable for beginners and those wishing to refresh their identification skills.
