Bumblebee Identification and Field Techniques with Ivan Wright. 30 April 2017, 10am – 4pm.
A welcome into the wonderful world of bumblebees! There are approximately 24 species of Bumbleebee in the UK and they are fascinating creatures, but under-recorded.
This training day will mostly deal with the accurate identification of bumblebees for recording purposes. It will also be covering what is – and is not – possible in the field with a pragmatic understanding of recording some difficult species e.g. transect work. The workshop will also include hands-on survey and specimen preparation experience – including a chance to practice field and bench techniques.
