Great British Bee Count

Leave a comment

Some of my readers may have participated in the RSPB  bird count that takes place annually at the end of January.  Now, Friends of the Earth are organising a Great British Bee Count, which runs for 6 weeks from 19th May to 30th June.  You can apply for a pack at:

which helps identify the numerous different species of bee to be found in this nation. There is also a Bee Saver Kit, which contains wildflower seeds, a bee identification guide, garden planner and a bee saver guide.  Also, an App that can be downloaded.

Bees are essential for pollinating many of the fruits and vegetables that we eat, as well as flowers, and their numbers are reducing drastically, mainly due to the use of pesticides.
