Recording zero sightings

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.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Alan

Hi Alan,
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

Cheers,

Richard
