A workshop aimed at beginners that will give an introduction to these fascinating insects including their lifecycle, habitat requirements and what we can do to help them in our own gardens. It will also include a short guide to identification of the six most common species you are likely to see, and also some of the rarer species found in Wiltshire. We will then walk around the RSPB Winterbourne Down reserve to have a go at identifying bumblebees in the field.more...
