I have been using the new on-line recording system. Unfortunately I have seen no bees on either of my two walks for this month. There does not seem to be a way of recording zero sightings, while recording that I was actually there (site, date and weather). Nothing shows on the walks summary.
I see you have not had a reply to your query. If you have not already done so I suggest emailing Richard Comont at beewalk(the at sign)bumblebeeconservation.org.
Hi Alan, when I had no bees on my first transect of the year, I just logged in, chose my transect and the date I had done the BeeWalk, and then on the form, I left it blank, and then when I clicked ‘next’ there was a comment box. So I put in a note that I had not seen any bees. This seemed to work ok.
Sorry for the delay in replying - the field season has been busy so far! As Beehappy says, the way to record no sightings is to log walk details without recording any bees on the sightings page
