Have you ever wondered where bumblebees live, why there are fewer than there used to be, and what you can do to help them? This one day training workshop, run by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, will give you an introduction to the ecology and identification of bumblebees.
We’ll hear presentations in the morning at Vane Farm nature reserve, followed by an afternoon site visit around the reserve to look for bees and key wildflower habitats. The course will be useful for anyone wishing to find out about bumblebees and improve their identification skills. Find out about:
The ecology and life cycle of a bumblebee
Understand the challenges facing bumblebee species, especially the ultra-rare Great yellow bumblebee
Recognise important features that will support bumblebees in a range of habitats, including grasslands, woodlands and farmland
Identify distinguishing characteristics of different bumblebees and how to spot a queen, worker and male
Identify six common bumblebee species
Why we need more data about bee populations.
