Thank you so much again for registering your interest in BeeWalk.
Here are the five documents you will need to get started.
BeeWalk Guidelines A contains everything you need to know to start surveying bumblebees including lots of tips to improve identification skills.
BeeWalk Guidelines B contains everything you need to know to set-up a transect. To officially register your transect with BeeWalk do fill in the Site Description form (F1) and return it to me along with a copy of the route on an OS map as instructed in Guidelines B.
Then there are three sets of recording forms. These are just different versions of the same forms and they are described in the Guidelines.

“Few people realise just how important bumblebees are. They are charming little things and a pleasure to see, but they also do an essential job which many people take for granted. If bumblebees continue to decline then we face ecological turmoil. Join BBCT today and support their important work.”
