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 workshop, run by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust with Buglife, Fife Nature Records Centre and the Fife’s Buzzing project, will give you a fun and interesting introduction to the ecology and identification of bumblebees and some other pollinators. We’ll hear some informal talks and training in the morning, followed by an afternoon visit to find some bumblebees and what flowers they are feeding on. The course will be particularly interesting for anyone wishing to find out about bumblebees and learn identification skills. Find out about:
• The ecology and life cycle of a bumblebee
• Identify distinguishing characteristics of different bumblebees and how to spot a queen, worker and male
• Learn about other types of pollinating insects
• Why we need more data about bee populations, how to carry out a simple monitoring transect and why it’s important to share your records
Places are FREE but limited, so booking is essential.
