Bumblebee Count

Bumble beeBuilding on the success of our Barnack Ward Wildlife Corridor we wondered if this year we could ask you to take part in a Bumblebee Count for 2011 between March and October.

This will produce baseline information that could be used for monitoring future changes in bumblebee populations – and we all know how important bees are for our survival.

A leaflet giving all the details of identification and recommendations for completing the survey will be circulated/available with the Parish Magazine next month. It is also be available electronically from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
