About the Event
Did you know we have 24 species of bumblebee in the UK? 🐝🌸 Discover the fascinating world of bumblebees at Whyke Community Orchard. We will discuss their ecology, behaviour and lifecycle and hopefully pot some bumblebees to see them up close and start identifying our most common species!
At the last workshop, we found 4 of the commonest 8 bumblebees on a cool day. Come and be surprised at what’s in our locality.
